See the elephants at the zoo during the Fall Fest weekends.
Jack Hanna's Fall Fest A great opportunity to visit the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium for a discount is coming in a couple of weekends. The fall festival will feature Jungle Jack Hanna and his animal friends Sept. 10-11 and Sept. 17-18. Special activities and attractions include pumpkin carving, country music, kid-friendly entertainment and seasonal treats. Fifth Third Bank is offering a Family 4-pack special, which includes 2 adults and 2 children and free parking for $30. That's a great deal and you get tickets for less than $10 per person and it includes free parking, which is normally $5. Pick up your Family 4-Pack at participating Fifth Third locations. Also, the first 2,000 to buy the pack get a free water bottle. To find a participating bank near you, visit www.53.com.
Donatos Take and Bake "Block O" pizzas are now available at Kroger stores for $9.99. I bet these will disappear from Buckeye tailgating tables in a snap. Also, Donatos introduced online ordering recently. It's fairly easy to figure out and my pizza was made correctly and waiting for me at the drive-thru window.
