ASHEBORO, N.C. (AP) - The North Carolina Zoo is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2014 and has scheduled a series of weekend events to mark the milestone.

Along with special events will be two new exhibits opening on Saturday

“Bugs: An Epic Adventure” is a new zoo attraction opening this weekend and continuing through the end of October. The exhibit features 13 giant, animatronic bugs created by Billings Productions of Allen, Texas. That’s the same company that produced the extremely popular “Dinosaurs” exhibit featured at the zoo over the past two years.

Also opening will be the “kidZone” (sic). It provides a stream, mud cafĂ©, rope bridge treetop experience, stone maze, live animal presentations and other educational programs designed especially for children.
