About the Top 5 Zoos, Aquariums or Nature Centers in the 2020 Boston Parents Paper Family Favorites
Boston Parents' Family Favorites was born with the idea to give readers in Greater Boston and throughout the Northeast a chance to voice their opinions on their personal 'Family Favorite' choices for Zoos, Aquariums or Nature Centers and everything kids and family. The program has evolved over the years, and hopefully, with a lot of input from our readers, we've been able to make it better and better.
The voting for Boston's Family Favorite Zoos, Aquariums or Nature Centers is conducted in a two-round process. The first round occurs in the month of March with open write-in nominations for parent's favorite Zoos, Aquariums or Nature Centers taking place. As more and more nominations come in, the most written-in Zoos, Aquariums or Nature Centers become automatically selectable and listed making it easier and easier for people to cast their nominations. And write-in nominations continue to be open until the end of the month.
As the nomination period for Zoos, Aquariums or Nature Centers in the first round comes to a close at the end of March, shortly after, the second round opens with the top nominee Zoos, Aquariums or Nature Centers being selectable in this final round of voting during the month of April. Write-in nominations are no longer available, and voters are open to select their favorite Zoos, Aquariums or Nature Centers from among those that are listed.
The final winners are posted in the August issue of Boston Parents Paper
We hope you enjoy! And we hope you cast your vote in March and again in April!
