You can visit the Sedgwick County Zoo for just $1 on Saturday

If you like to save money and don’t mind crowds, Saturday is your day to visit the Sedgwick County Zoo.

From 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., the zoo will be putting on a Back-to-School Bash, and admission for non-members will be just $1. Members will be admitted free.

Last year, the event drew a crowd of more than 12,000 people, meaning that the parking lots overflowed and people had to park on the grass lot north of the zoo. That plan is in place for this year’s event, too.

Attendees are encouraged to bring school supplies to donate to the Salvation Army, though donations aren’t required to get the discount admission.
