    Bit to Do

    Louisville Family Fun is at it again, this time on the Instafam Hunt with the Louisville Zoo! These interactive, highly engaging and motivating family scavenger hunts are so ideal for busy and active families who are longing for something DIFFERENT to do in our great city. Check it out today, purchase your tickets, and meet up with your family and make some new friends at a fantastic venue: the zoo!

    Tickets are $7 per person (under age 3 are free), and you know the BEST DEAL about the whole thing? 100% of all ticket sales, all proceeds, go to benefit the work of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kentuckiana. What a feel good thing, having an experience in a different setting, with a chance to win some outstanding prizes for your family along the way, and knowing that your fun is going to help local kids find some mentors who can partner with them and make a BIG difference in their lives. Louisville families have got to love this idea!

    Details about the Instafam:

    What: Instafam – an interactive scavenger hunt using clues and the social media tool, Instagram, to find your way through the zoo. You’ll get a knapsack, some swag, snacks, and more for each family, and free water bottles for the first 100 attendees. Giveaways and grand prizes are also in the mix.

    When: Friday, September 12, 5:30-7:30pm (enter at 5pm and play with LEGOS from Bricks & Minifigs)

    Where: Louisville Zoo, 1100 Trevilian Way

    Who: Families with kids of all ages! This is a great event for families with older kids and tweens as well.

    Why: Because you want to give back to your community, and you want to have some fun in a unique way. Pack up the car (be sure to bring some chairs and a blanket!) and set out on a scavenger hunt through our award winning zoo, and stay for the after sunset/twilight movie that is playing on the grounds of the zoo that evening.

    My daughter and I attended the first Instafam that happened along Museum Row on Main Street in downtown Louisville and I can say it still holds the fondest memories for both of us in the past year. See more information, tips about joining Instagram (you don’t have to keep an active account if you do wish to), and more. For ticket information, click here.
