BASEBALL DAY Who will have more fun, the kids or the grown ups? Celebrate the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park by taking photos with the 2004 and 2007 World Series trophies; playing games; dressing up in baseball gear; checking out equipment from the past and present; meeting Wally the Green Monster.

308 Congress St., Boston. 617-426-6500.

A MOVING EXPERIENCE The Franklin Park Zoo has a new 10,000-square-foot resident that requires no food. It’s a playground with a climbing structure in peacock colors and a tube slide resembling a giraffe. Check it out at “Art Moves at the Zoo” where there is music, dance, and performances by Boston-based companies. Participants include the Boston Tap Company, Phunk Phenomenon, Cambridge Youth Dance Project, and Tony Williams’s Ballet Rox. July 20 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. $17, $14 ages 2-12, $11 seniors.

SETH MEYERS The actor-comedian has denied rumors he might take over as permanent cohost on “Live! With Kelly” after some guest-hosting spots.

YOU LIKE?
