Beloved cougar cubs Keira, Miksa and Tika turn 1 and to celebrate the milestone, Cougar Mountain Zoo is celebrating a day early.
The party doubles as a fundraiser for the zoo, a nonprofit organization, and The Beat, The Issaquah Press’ section by, for and about teenagers. Zoogoers can watch as the curious cubs tear open gifts and dig into special birthday cakes made from meat.
Purchase $10 tickets at the newspaper office, 45 Front St. S., at the zoo gift shop, 19525 S.E. 54th St. Or email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 392-6278.
The Beat staff is going to be on hand to meet people and help with face painting, birthday card making and serving cake to party guests. The event also includes raffles of zoo-related prizes.
The party in the upper zoo is from 2:30-5 p.m. Saturday. The rest of the zoo is closed during the event.
