The Lake Superior Zoo in Duluth is again hosting their Mother's Day Craft and Plant Sale. It's a great way to spend some family time together in a fun environment. They'd also welcome additional Northland vendors to be a part of it.

You do not need to purchase a Lake Superior Zoo admission ticket to shop the sale, but there is an opportunity to earn a free admission ticket into the zoo.

According to organizers, the craft show, which they hope will also have plants available to purchase, will be held in the main parking lot which is just outside the main entrance of the Lake Superior Zoo.

Mother's Day is Sunday, May 8th and the sale will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. For every $50 you spend with the vendors, you’ll receive one free admission to the zoo.

Vendors expected to be participating currently include:

  • Loosey Goosey Tye Dye
  • Talbot’s Tasty Treats
  • Colorstreet
  • Wonder Paper Art LLC
  • Bee’s Hobbies & Hooper’s Handmade
  • Scentsy
