Howl-A-Palooza, held at the zoo at 7400 Division Drive each year, is a celebration of the animal and is held in conjunction with National Wolf Awareness Week. Throughout the day, the zoo put on special events featuring wolves and held a wolf howling contest.
The winner of the contest received an overnight stay in Traverse City’s Great Wolf Lodge.
Other events included zookeeper talks about wolves and a special Wolf Senses Discovery Center exhibit. The zoo’s Mexican wolves were available for $40 “adoptions,” which get the proud parents a certificate, wolf photograph and a plush wolf.
