On Saturday, July 12, 2014, the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens hosted their first ever – Family Jam at the LA Zoo which was sponsored by RIO 2 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. We attended as a Fox Home Ent Insider (a member of their influencer community). This themed event was a celebration of the film coming to Blu-ray/DVD. Activities included crafts for kids, karaoke, zoo keep talks, character photo ops with Nico and Pedro, live music, samba dancers, scavenger hunts and prizes. We won a RIO 2 Beach Bag for completing the Scavenger Hunt! (Other themed RIO 2 prizes were available). Thanks, LA Zoo and RIO 2, for a fun evening with the family!
