Join us for Wild Family Fun at the Races on Sunday 18th June, in support of Yorkshire Wildlife Park Foundation. It will be a great way to celebrate Father’s Day, with a packed seven race card and entertainment for the entire family including face painting, colouring competitions, kids disco and a fascinating animal facts show. There will also be special guest appearances from CBBC’s Andy Day, as well as Yorkshire Wildlife Park‘s favourite mascot, Victor the Polar Bear!

And don’t forget, every penny raised for Yorkshire Wildlife Park Foundation will go towards vital conservation projects such as Project Polar, which is working to protect polar bears in the wild from threats such as global warming.
