SARASOTA - Sarasota Jungle Gardens back to school bash had dozens of families attend the magical gardens for one last day of fun in the sun before returning to the classrooms. With the purchase of one adult ticket three kids got in for free. 

"You definitely want to get out all that energy, let the kids come enjoy that fresh air, we do have that beautiful botanical gardens here,” said Emily McClure, educator at Sarasota Jungle Gardens.  "It’s all about giving back to the community and to be able to let the kids have [one]  last fun weekend.”

Kids and their parents got to roam the nearly 10 acre garden and even got to see the new butterfly garden exhibit that opened up this weekend.
