A few times each year, Zoo Boise offers free admission to its visitors, and this coming Saturday, Dec. 2, they'll swing the gates open for another admission-free day with a little help from Santa. Dubbed "Claus 'N Paws," the holiday-themed, day-long party will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Santa Claus will visit with the kids and critters, and photos will be available for a donation that benefits zoo programs.
Some holiday gifts (zoo officials like to call them "animal enrichments") will be distributed to various animals throughout the day. Check the schedule below to find out when your favorite creatures will be receiving their treats.
