"Kemono Friends" Gets Real with Misaki Park Collaboration
It’s just not summer vacation at the zoo these days without a Kemono Friends collaboration, and Misaki Park is the latest to get a tie-in event! Starting next month and running until September, the popular show will be crossing over with the zoo’s “Night Zoo” event for two months of fun, education, and prizes.
21 standees of popular Friends will be placed at 19 corresponding exhibits at the zoo, so families can visit all their favorites while they’re at the park. In addition, the park will feature projections of the anime characters around the park once the sun goes down.
In addition, visitors can take home one of three pinback badges themed to the event: Red Kangaroo, Black-Tailed Prairie Dog, and Bottlenose Dolphin! The three badges will be exclusive to the Misaki Park event.
The collaboration starts July 6 and runs until September 19. More information is available on the official collaboration website.
