Randolph County residents to save on zoo tickets in August

ASHEBORO – Randolph County residents will be able to visit the North Carolina Zoo at a discount as part of the zoo’s 50th anniversary celebration.

“Randolph County Days at the Zoo” will run from Aug. 5-30, allowing county residents and up to three guests to attend for $5 each.

“This is a program to give back to our community and express our gratitude for 50 wild years here in Randolph County,” said Diane Villa, deputy director and chief communications officer at the North Carolina Zoo.

Randolph County residents will need to make an online reservation to receive the discounted rate, and the three additional guests do not need to be from Randolph County. The reservation holder will be required to show an ID with a Randolph County ZIP code on the day of their visit.

Food, gift shop items and attractions will remain at full price.
