Posted by Wild Florida on May 11, 2021 1:00:00 PM

It’s no secret that we know a thing or two about alligators. To share this knowledge and passion with our visitors, we're hosting Gator Week, May 24 - 29, and offering free Gator Park admission to everyone who brings in a donation of spare change. At the end of Gator Week, we'll also celebrate the inaugural National Alligator Day on Saturday, May 29. In addition to the week of gator-themed festivities, we're celebrating our two adult albino alligators, Snowflake and Blizzard, for producing 18 eggs this month!
