Toledo, Ohio— The Toledo Zoo is extremely grateful to the voters of Lucas County for their continuing support! To celebrate this special partnership, the Zoo is offering FREE admission to all Lucas County residents from Saturday, February 19 through Monday, February 21. Lucas County residents must show ID demonstrating proof of residency to receive free admission. They will also receive coupons offering special discounts on future visits to the Zoo.

Over the course of the weekend, visitors will enjoy all of the usual programming that is part of Frozentoesen Winter Weekends. On Saturday, February 19, an ice-carving demonstration will take place at 11:00 a.m. in the Main Plaza. Meanwhile in the Museum of Science, an inflatable bounce house will give kids a chance to bounce around and blow off some steam! Frozentoesen Winter Weekends are presented by Mercy Children’s Hospital.

On Saturday and Sunday, Zap Entertainment will perform two exciting and educational shows—The Wonderful World of Bubbles and The Magic of Going Green. Performances will take place at 12:00 p.m., 1:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. in the Indoor Theatre, located in the Museum of Science.

The free weekend is the Zoo’s way of thanking Lucas County voters, who have demonstrated their ongoing support for the Zoo. Through passage of the Zoo’s Operating Levy in 2006, the Zoo has been able to maintain its reputation as a world-class zoological institution and a top regional attraction. In addition, Lucas County’s support for the Zoo’s Capital Levy has made it possible for the Zoo to develop the new Nature’s Neighborhood, and plan major renovations of the elephant exhibit and Aquarium.

The Toledo Zoo is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is located on the Anthony Wayne Trail (US 25), four miles south of downtown Toledo. For more information, please visit www.toledozoo.org or call (419) 385-4040. Lucas County residents are admitted free of charge each Monday from 10 a.m. to noon. ID showing proof of residency is required.
