COLUMBIA, SC (FOX Carolina) -

With the government shutdown upon us, one South Carolina zoo is giving a special price to federal employees - free.

The Riverbanks Zoo and Garden in Columbia is offering free admission to all employees of the federal government from Oct. 2 to 4.

"Riverbanks appreciates the work of federal employees and is extending this complimentary admission offer in the midst of the partial government shutdown that has resulted in the furlough of hundreds of thousands of federal employees," a representative for the zoo said in a press release.

Federal employees will have to show their federal ID at the gate to get free admission. Family members will have to purchase tickets at the regular admission rate.
