All Newtown residents get in for only $5 with I.D. on Saturday
Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo is proud to invite all Newtown residents to come to the Zoo on Saturday, June 14, 2014 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm for a reduced admission fee of just $5 with proper I.D. Meet and greet with friends and neighbors during a fun filled day to please the whole family.
“Newtown Day gives us the opportunity to say thank you to our neighbors who have continuously supported us throughout the years,” explained Gregg Dancho, zoo director.
Newtown residents are invited to spend the day visiting new animals at the Zoo and enjoying the great outdoors. The Zoo recently welcomed four North American river otter pups, which are a fan favorite. Back again for the summer are three exotic camels, which visitors may ride for $5 per person. Visitors are welcome to take photos at no additional charge and will be able to purchase ride tickets at the front gate, gift shop, carousel, and at the camel ride. While there are no age restrictions for riders, anyone five years old and younger requires an adult rider with them. The zoo also is offering a combo ticket for both a carousel and camel ride for $6.00.
