Zoo-py Father’s Day


KNOXVILLE, Tenn.— Daring dads who accompany their kids to Knoxville Zoo on 
Father’s Day will receive free admission and a family adventure during the zoo’s “Double Dare Your Dad” event scheduled for Sunday, June 19.   
 
Kids are encouraged to “double dare” their dads to have a wild time by riding a tiger (on the zoo’s carousel), get a tattoo, (a temporary one) or to peer into the open jaws of an alligator 
(who has been preserved for posterity as well as safety)!   
 
Visitors can learn all about the zoo’s animal dads by taking part in the Double Dad Dare challenge and have the chance to win a family zoo membership by identifying the oldest dad, 
the dad with the most offspring, and other genealogical quizzes throughout the zoo.  Dads 
can take a break in the shade at the zoo’s exciting new Animals in Action show and take a double-dog dare when some very talented canines take the stage.    
 
Dads will receive free admission with a paid child’s admission on Sunday, June 19, 2011. 
This offer is not valid with any other coupon or promotion.            
 
Knoxville Zoo is open year-round.  Located off exit 392A from 
Interstate 40, the zoo is open every day except Christmas Day. Knoxville Zoo is nationally
