There is no mystery as to why so many events have been postponed since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, but we are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel as Florida’s non-essential businesses begin to reopen.
After much discussion, Wild Florida has decided to go through with hosting their annual Gator Week. The event is set to run Monday, June 8, through Saturday, June 13. To express gratitude to all essential workers, Wild Florida will be offering free admission to the park all week long.
Sam Haught, co-owner of Wild Florida, said in a press release, “We look forward to this week all year, and this time, we are excited to honor those who have sacrificed in our communities. Our companies have contemplated how we can give back to those that carried us through the crisis, and we hope that this helps.” Haught described the gesture as “a small way of saying thanks for all the sacrifices healthcare workers, grocery store employees, truckers, and first responders give to their communities.”
Alongside this announcement, Wild Florida has revealed that all Florida residents will be able to receive a 50% discount for the rest of the year.
