BALTIMORE (AP) — The Maryland Zoo is offering visitors a chance to check out what their favorite animals are up to in the evenings.
The zoo will stay open until 7 p.m. on Thursdays in August, and admission prices will also be cut in half after 4 p.m. on those days.
Visitors can tour the zoo as the sun goes down, listen to live music and enjoy a happy hour in the Jones Falls Zephyr Train Station.
On Tuesdays, the zoo will offer a 25 percent discount on admission for tickets bought at the gate and a coupon for a free frozen treat. Keepers will also be on hand on Tuesdays to talk to visitors about how they keep the animals cool in the summer.
