CLEVELAND — Zoo patrons were in for a sweet treat Saturday.
Popsicle stopped at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo for its coast-to-coast Popsicle Pop-up Party tour Saturday. Patrons were treated to games, activities, giveaways and, of course, a free Popsicle.
Popsicles were invented in 1905 by an 11-year-old, who left a mixture of powdered soda, water and a stirring sick in a cup on his porch. After a cold night, he awoke to find a frozen pop.
Admission to the zoo is $12.50 for adults and $8.25 for kids ages 2-11. Admission is free for children 2 and under as well as zoo members.
