Half the Price, Twice the Fun!

Franklin Park Zoo

Friday, November 23, 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Shopping will be a zoo, so head to Franklin Park Zoo the day after Thanksgiving and receive half priced admission! Warm up in the Tropical Forest as you burn off those Turkey Day calories and learn more about the Zoo’s animals during zookeeper chats.

Visit our arts and crafts table and an education station, where you'll discover more about animals and the importance of conservation.
