Knoxville Zoo Transforms Into a Magical Animal Kingdom on Princess Day

Posted: 04/08/2010
Knoxville Zoo invites the royalty in your family to a fairytale adventure in our animal kingdom. Bring your little princess (or Prince Charming) to enjoy enchanting activities at Princess Day on Saturday, May 15 from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Of course, all frogs are welcome, too!

On Princess Day, young ladies ages 12 and under who come to the zoo dressed as princesses and young gentlemen ages 12 and under who arrive dressed as a prince receive free admission with a paid adult admission to Knoxville Zoo. And since no fairy tale would be complete without a frog in the mix, any little visitors age 12 and under who come to the festivities dressed as their favorite amphibian will receive free admission with a paid adult admission as well. (Free admission cannot be combined with any other promotion or discount, and one child free with each paying adult on May 15, 2010, only.)

Princess Day will also feature some special activities to make it a majestic day, including the chance to meet pretty princesses from far and wide, and a treat fit for a king or queen to the first 300 attendees aged 12 or under.

One lucky regent will win a Royal Prize Package for six that includes free admission to Knoxville Zoo and a ride to Princess Day in a white limousine on May 15. Details on how to register as well as contest rules and requirements are available on Knoxville Zoo's web site at
