This weekend, you can visit all the animals at the Knoxville Zoo for free. This Saturday and Sunday is the Knoxville Zoo's annual Kroger Free Weekend.
Those who attend are encouraged to donate items to the Mission of Hope and several area animal shelters. Mission of Hope is requesting non-perishable food items, toys and hygiene items for children in rural Appalachia. The animal centers need dry and wet dog or cat food.
The zoo is open from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
