Speed dates to heat up Valley Zoo

Valentines Animal instincts sometimes go hand in hand when it comes to successful date.

That’s why staff at the Edmonton Valley Zoo say it will be the No. 1 spot for singles for two days beginning Feb. 13 once again for the Valentines Day weekend. The zoo is hosting a series of speed-date nights in the event dubbed Animal Attraction, for the second time after a successful first go of it last year.

And as singles meet candidates during eight-minute sessions, zoo staff will show off the animals while offering lectures on animal mating habits as “a bit of an icebreaker,” said Tyler Pollock, an events co-ordinator at the zoo.

“This past September, I found myself at a wedding where I met a couple — they weren’t exactly bride and groom and they were people who dated for about a year now after the speed dating event,” said Pollock. Tickets for the event are $40. Singles looking for a booking can call 780-457-8535, or go to eightminutedate.ca more info.
