The Louisville Zoo is inviting the public to help name 13 giant bugs in their new exhibit. Each Monday and Wednesday through the week of July 21, entries (one per person, per day) can be submitted through the Louisville Zoo’s Facebook page.
Contest winners will receive not just bragging rights, but also a mention on their bug’s signage at the exhibit as well as a special prize: two free general admission zoo tickets or two free one-day ride passes for Zoo members. Winners will be chosen by zoo staff and announced on Fridays some time after 12 P.M. If multiple people submitted the chosen name, a random drawing will determine the winner among them.
The Louisville Zoo, located at 1100 Trevillian Way, is open from 10 A.M. to 8 P.M. in June and July, 10 A.M. to 6 P.M. through September 28 and 10 A.M. to 5 P.M. September 29 through mid-march.
