Free One-day Admission to the Blank Park Zoo | Events
The Blank Park Zoo is offering Iowans free admission to its facility for one day only as a fundraising effort for the upcoming Africa expansion project.
Thought admission is free, the zoo asks attendees to donate at least $10 per family toward the construction project.
“At the Big Dig, you’ll learn about the Africa construction project – the new animals, exhibits and features coming to Blank Park Zoo,” said Mark Vukovich, CEO of the Blank Park Zoo, in a press release.
For “Big Dig,” the first 1,500 kids will get a free construction hat, and engage in various fun activities planned at the zoo including scavenger hunts, pictures with animals, storytelling, and climbing on to construction equipment.
The free admission day will take place between 10:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. on Friday, July 29.
