RENO — Enjoy the sight of Animal Ark’s predators stalking, pouncing and attacking piñatas to find out what treats await them inside during a Cinco de Mayo enrichment activity on May 7.

Animal Ark invites the community to bring cameras and attend this event to help provide funds to care for these animals. The sanctuary’s animal keepers and educational guides will share stories and answer questions about the wild residents.

Come to Animal Ark on April 30 to help make the piñatas for the event.

The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on May 7 at Animal Ark Wildlife Sanctuary & Nature Center. From Reno, take U.S. 395 north, turn right onto Red Rock Road, drive 11.5 miles, turn right onto Deerlodge Road and then take the driveway at 1265 Deerlodge Road. Admission costs $12 for children and seniors, $15 for adults and is free for those age 2 and under. For more information, call 775-970-3111 or visit
