Escondido, California - Astounding acrobatic feats, traditional Asian dances, impressive martial arts demonstrations, rhythmic drumming and more provide interactive, family fun at Summer Safari: Asian Celebration presented by LivingSocial at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, now through August 17.
Visitors to Summer Safari will be awed by agile performers balancing on chairs stacked more than 16 feet in the air, foot juggling while on a unicycle, gymnasts forming a human tower while spinning plates on sticks, contortion acts combined with comedy for kids, and lion dancing and Japanese drumming, performed with the assistance of young audience volunteers.
In addition to Asian-themed festivities, Safari Park visitors can experience memory-making, up-close encounters with spectacular animals like tigers at the all-new Tiger Trail, lion cubs at Lion Camp, unique and amazing birds at the Frequent Flyers bird show and a cheetah reaching full sprinting speed just feet away from spectators at Shiley's Cheetah Run.
Summer Safari: Asian Celebration is a wild time not to be missed! Summer Safari offers extended Park hours from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. All Summer Safari festivities are included with admission or Safari Park membership.
