Okie%20Face%202.jpg The Franklin Park Zoo invites you to come celebrate the summer birthdays of 2 of their western lowland gorillas. Okie turns 16 on July 11, and Gigi, the oldest gorilla in the Zoo turns 37 on July 13. The Tropical Forest area will be festively decorated, and visitors can sing a birthday tune while watching the birthday duo enjoy special treats made special for the big day.

The gorillas public birthday bash will be Saturday, July 11 at 11 a.m. The event is free with regular admission: $13 for adults, $7 for kids, and 2 and under are free. Visit online for details or call 617-541-LION.
