In addition to catching a glimpse of elephants, apes and lions dining on fruit- and meatsicles, families will also be able to take in fun events like a fire hose display from local firefighters, craft tables where kids can customize sun visors and paper fans and watch as ice sculpture artists carve animals out of blocks of ice.
From 11 a.m.-1 p.m. on both days, the Radio Disney street team will be on hand with games, sing-alongs and contests.
Oh, and yes there will be misters and fans, so you can actually keep cool, too.
