For the third year in a row, Zoo Miami is offering $5 admission, backed up by Ford Motor Company. Celebrate the holiday week around Independence Day and enjoy family fun at the Zoo. Representatives from Ford will be on hand July 4, 7 and 8 with giveaways when you register to win a new Ford Focus. Plus on Saturday, Blue Bell will help you cool down with free samples of ice cream from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Pepsi Next will distribute free samples on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Be sure to visit Zoo Miami’s new Playworld Playground for some wet and wild fun for the kids. If you visit on the weekend, the Hippo Slide, the worldâ€™s largest inflatable water slide, will be open for a seriously slippery experience.
