BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Starting January 1, the Buffalo Zoo is offering reduced admission cost for its annual "Polar Bear Days."

Visitors to the zoo will be able to get in for $8.95 per person, compared to the normal rates of $12.50 for adults and $9.25 for children. Kids under two always get in free. Parking is also complimentary during the Polar Bear Days.

The zoo says the special promotion is a great chance for community members to see the animals in a different climate, especially the animals that are very active this time of the year, including the polar bears and arctic foxes. The crowds are also typically smaller this time of year.

The Buffalo Zoo is open daily from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.

You can also enjoy the zoo's newest eatery, Wild Burger, serving up family-friendly food. You can get anything from a weck burger to fried cheese curds to freshly prepared salads. The restaurant replaces the former "Beastro".
