July 3 from 4 to 7pm – Food Truck and a Book Party for: Positive Pete Penguin’s First Bus Ride

  • It’s the first day of school, and Pete Penguin is nervous. He’s never ridden a bus before! What if he can’t find a seat? What if he doesn’t make any friends? Pete can’t help but worry, so it’s up to Momma Penguin to save the day. Will Pete Penguin learn to be positive after all? Come find out at the Utica Zoo! Author James Davis will be reading, selling, and signing copies of Positive Pete Penguin’s First Bus Ride. There will be a Birnie Bus at the zoo for kids to check out and a 5 ton Army Troop Tuck will be collecting non-perishable food items for area veterans. The Samaritan Counseling Center will have a table staffed by employees and counselors with resources. You can also purchase the book online.
