Gates will open at 9 a.m. and last admission will be at 5 p.m. with the Zoo closing at 5:30 p.m. In addition to Zoo admissions being $1 all day long, the Zoo will sell Hiland Dairy products for only $1, including cold beverages.
Guests can enjoy activities throughout the day, including the Zoo's Animal Ambassador Show at the Civitan Amphitheater at 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.
The Zoo will also add additional food vendors, security officers, and emergency medical technicians to ensure everyone has a fun and safe day.
Hiland Dairy is an annual sponsor of the Zoo, committing more than $60,000 to the Zoo in the form of sponsorships and in-kind product donations. Formerly Coleman Dairy, Hiland Dairy is proud to sponsor the annual Dollar Day at the Zoo to bring family fun to all Arkansas families.
"Hiland Dairy loves to support the Zoo because it's such a great place for Arkansas families," said Mike Flagg, general manager of Hiland Dairy.
Little Rock Zoo Director Susan Altrui added that the Zoo is looking forward to hosting the eighth annual Dollar Day.
"We are very appreciative of Hiland Dairy, who continues to be an important partner for the Zoo as we work together to help families and improve Arkansas communities. Their continued commitment makes it possible for us to offer this special discount day to the public and share engaging experiences that inspire people to value and protect our natural world," Altrui said.
