NOT A DRILL: Come chill out at the Denver Aquarium for Sloth Weekend, February 23-24!
It doesn’t matter who you are, everyone’s got a soft spot for a cute sloth. They’re mellow, they’re funny-looking, and they seem very unconcerned with other people’s business — which you have to respect.
In celebration of all things “sloth,” the Downtown Denver Aquarium is hosting its annual Sloth Weekend event, where attendees can get up close to these chill beauties and learn a little more about their habits.
The two-day event is stacked with sloth-centric activities like conservation panels, sloth viewings, and even private meet-and-greets! Of course, since “sloths are sloths,” the Aquarium includes a disclaimer that the sloths won’t be available for constant viewing — but, again, you gotta respect that nonchalant attitude of the sloths on their own timeline.
The Sloth Weekend activities will take place between 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday, and you can check out the full schedule here.
For both days, tickets for the private meet-and-greets with the sloth celebs are handed out at 8:30 a.m. to the first 100 guests in line, so be sure to get there early if you want to secure your sloth session! And just a heads up, the event is so popular that, in past years, fans have started lining up as early as 2 or 3 a.m.! Seems pretty intense for such a chill animal, but you can’t blame them? Sloths are just … COOL.
