Moms get half-price admission to Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium on Saturday, May 12. But that’s only one reason to head up to the park.

The weekend features the summer kickoff of a new Wild Wonders Outdoor Theater Show and Radio Disney will be on site Saturday.

Here’s more from the press release:

Wild Wonders Outdoor Theater opens its brand new 2012 show with superheroes (and a villain) of its own. Captain Adventure, Dr. Do-Nothing and Herald the Wonder Dog star in a fascinating show about getting out and enjoying nature, and they get plenty of help from birds that scream overhead, a rope-climbing two-toed sloth, an iguana, a lynx and lots of other talented zoo animals.

The Budgie Buddies, those birds everybody likes to squawk, er, talk about, will be back for another season of adorableness.

Meerkat babies and their kin entertain guests daily while at the same time giving lessons in family units and group dynamics in the Kids Zone area.

Endangered clouded leopard cubs Suksn and Chan are cute beyond measure while teaching lessons about the need to preserve the wild and its families. They’ll be in their den at Asian Forest Sanctuary.

Radio Disney powered by Travel Leaders will be on site with music, games, prizes and costumed superheroes on Saturday, May 12.

Zoo hours are 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, through May 20. Extended summer hours begin on May 21.
