The Elmwood Park Zoo in Norristown is discounting admission to $4 per person on Monday, July 4th. That may make it possible for cash-strapped families to enjoy the zoo without spending lots of money.
There will be live animal encounters, music, food and a moon bounce. Oh, and the prairie dog exhibit was just refurbished; the little fellas are back in it. You can see the one on guard, as usual, as the others go about their business.
There are also a cool eagle canyon, huge bison, and of course the cougars, who pad around their rocky habitat. There is also a pair of falcons and some neat monkeys and frogs.
The reduced price is being subsidized by Beneficial Bank.
