If you’re looking for something nice this weekend for mom, the Sunset Zoo has a special offer.

“Moms can get in here free on Mother’s Day, with a paid admission,” Melissa Kirkwood, marketing and development officer at Sunset Zoo said.

Moms will also receive a free gift from Bellus Academy while supplies last, good for a complimentary haircut, deep conditioning and blow dry, a basic manicure or pedicure, brow or lip wax, an aromatherapy facial or back stress reduction.

“We just think that’s a great opportunity during Mother’s Day to come enjoy the spring, walk around the zoo with your entire family,” Kirkwood said.

Looking ahead beyond Mother’s Day, the zoo will begin hosting in-person birthday parties June 1. Annual fundraising events are also on the schedule, with Wine in the Wild set for Aug. 14. Brew at the Zoo is set for Sept. 10.

Sunset Zoo is open 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
