The zoo allowed fathers to get in free with a paying child, one that can even be grown for Father's Day.
In addition to the free admission, the first 100 fathers that walked through the gate received a coupon for a family value pack at Abilene's Cold Stone Creamery location.
The Abilene Zoo is one of the main attractions of Abilene and is home to more than 900 animals from 250 species.
