Asian Elephant Extravaganza
Saturday, August 19, 2017
10:00AM – 4:30PM
Our Summer of Siri culiminates with this year's Extravaganza, celebrating Asian culture and our beloved Siri's 50th birthday. Join us for a daylong party that blends wildlife conservation education with the rich culture and heritage of the native countries of Asian elephants. Activities include elephant demos at Asian Elephant Preserve, fun kids' crafts and games, as well as examples of Southeast Asian and Indian costume, art, music and dance with help from Syracuse University's South Asia Center and Cornell University's Southeast Asia Program.
Siri will have her face painted with the traditional native headdress and receive a special birthday treat, and we'll announce the results of our Pennies for Pachyderms fundraiser for elephant conservation in Siri's honor.
