CINCINNATI -- It's going to be a scorcher, but $1 admission means the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden will still be packed Wednesday. 

Wednesday is the Macy's Kids, Cultures, Critters and Crafts Festival from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the zoo, which offers a one-day-only special price of $1. Parking costs an additional $10.

The zoo recommends buying tickets online here in advance to avoid long ticketing lines.

You can also purchase a Zoo Adventure Ticket, including your admission, all day rides, and a 4-D theater experience for $10 plus $10 parking.

Tickets are typically $16 for adults and $12 for children and senior citizens when bought online.
