Father's Day is this coming Sunday and sure, you could do what you do every year. You could sit around, gift dad with yet another tie (because he loves them so much), and wait for dad to fire up the grill and make some burgers.

Or, you can change things up and surprise dad by giving him a day that he won't ever forget. Get pops out of the house and out of his same ole, same ole Father's Day rut and help him rediscover his inner kid with a walk on the wild side at the Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park.

Dad will have fun celebrating his day with other dads from the animal kingdom by checking out a variety of mammals, birds, reptiles, and even some animals on the endangered species list including the African Penguin, Golden Lion Tamarin, and Red Wolf, among others.

The Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park will open its gates to you and to your dad for their special Father's Day celebration on Sunday, June 17th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. To help you honor the most important man in your life, dad will receive free admission on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 17th.
