Dragonfly Festival



Ah, the joys of the BioPark. Cuddly animals, scary critters, fuzzy plants, cool flowers, squishy fishies, massive sharks. The sights, sounds and smells of the Zoo, the Aquarium and the Botanic Gardens are enough to keep one busy for days. And what better way to fill your senses without emptying your pocket than at the July Half-Price Weekend? Oh yeah, that's right, admission to all three world-class parks is just $4.50 for adults, $2.25 for seniors and $2 for kiddos on July 20 and 21 for New Mexico residents. Discounted tickets can be purchased from any BioPark cashier from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. both days. And don't forget to stop by the Dragonfly Festival at the Botanic Gardens from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to learn about this interesting, ancient insect and hang out by the U.S.'s first Dragonfly Sanctuary Pond.
