Zoo-goers can now feed, pet and pose with the Aldabra giant tortoises
The Sedgwick County Zoo is open on Thanksgiving. It’s open on Christmas. It’s open every day of the year.
Except one, and this year, that day is Saturday.
Those planning a trip for Saturday to the zoo, 5555 Zoo Blvd., will need to reschedule. Zoobilee, the zoo’s big grown-up party and fundraiser that happens every September, will close the venue down on Saturday. It won’t reopen until noon on Sunday.
Want to check out Zoobilee? It’s a raucous, fun and delicious event that fills the zoo with live music, local restaurants passing out food samples and lots of adult beverages, included in the price of the ticket.
The zoo still has tickets available for Zoobilee, which runs from 6 p.m. to midnight on Saturday. They’re $165 a person and available online through Friday. After that, people can get tickets by visiting the zoo or calling 316-660-9453. Tickets will also be available at the gate.
