Grand celebration
28 December 2021

For the first time, our hippopotamus Stepanida celebrated her birthday in a new apartment with a large number of guests.  The beauty is 29 years old.

Stepanida is a real Kharkiv woman, the sixteenth hippopotamus born in Kharkiv Zoo.  This event happened late in the evening on December 22, 1992.  But this time, in order to congratulate the birthday girl as many people as possible, they decided to celebrate on a day off.  Indeed, a lot of guests came to the holiday.  Both kids and adults were looking forward to the appearance of Stepanida.  The beauty appeared in a matter of minutes.  This is not surprising, because an amazing gift was already waiting in the aviary - a cake in the shape of a star, created from Stepanida's favorite products - carrots, apples, pumpkins, bananas, grapes, hay.

Under the friendly congratulations of the visitors, the birthday girl ate a cake with appetite.  After the meal, she settled down to rest, enjoying the attention of the guests, for whom there were also prepared surprises.  These are thematic workshops on making paper hippos and greeting cards, and entertainment with Santa Claus and funny hippos, and gifts from friends of Kharkiv zoo.

The partners of the holiday were the "Digital Printing Center", the motto of which: "All in one center" is 100% justified, because  there is a wide range of services for any task;  "Helper" is the largest stationery supermarket in Kharkiv: everything for training and business, retail at wholesale prices;  The League of Transformers is the largest collection of realistic life size puppets in Kharkiv, animation programs for children that will take your breath away!
