Free admission at Jackson Zoo on Thanksgiving

JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) — Families got the chance to go to the Jackson Zoo at no cost Thursday.

Zoo admission has been free on Thanksgiving Day since 2005.

The staff was accepting donations at the gate from those who wanted to give. The donation was used to vote for their favorite Jackson Zoo Mascot: tiger, otter, zebra, flamingo, alligator, or giraffe.

Families who donated $5 or more can put their name in a drawing for a free 12-month family membership for next year.
