The festivities don’t end there, NEW Zoo announced the following day, August 22, the first 500 guests will receive free admission with the 501st guest receiving a special gift basket valued at $150.

We’re grateful to share this wonderful opportunity for people to enjoy the Zoo, especially for those who may not otherwise be able to visit without such a sponsorship.”

Officials say Zoo admission tickets will not be available for sale online for Saturday. Free admission will be provided to the first 500 guests who arrive, then the Zoo will sell admission tickets at the gate for the 501st guest and beyond that day.
