There is a lot going on with the Binghamton Zoo this month and it begins this Saturday, May 5th with the 5th Annual Run WILD at the Vestal Coal House. Runners and walkers will both start at 11 a.m. It's a USATF certified 5K NY14087J on the Vestal Rail Trail.

The Binghamton Zoo will have two ZooMobiles with educational displays along the route and you can visit the animals during or after the 5K run/walk. Juggler extraordinaire, Will Stafford will be on hand to perform and there will be a free kids run after the 5K. You can find out more and register now for this event.

98.1 the Hawk is proud to sponsor next week's event at the Binghamton Zoo. We'll be celebrating Mothers Day and here's a really good way to treat mom and thank her for everything she does with free admission.

Wrap up your weekend activities at the Zoo on Saturday, May 19th with a Flea Market and Book Sale. It goes from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tara and I went to this event last year and we're astonished at all the books that were available and better yet, the prices couldn't be beat.

The Binghamton Zoo is located at 60 Morgan Road and the admissions booth is open from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. every day with the zoo closing at 5 pm.
