If you're looking for something different for the holiday weekend, the new Shop n' Save in Adamston may have your answer.

Jungle Safari Petting Zoo has set up in the store's parking lot.

The attraction offers families the chance to see wild animals including leopards and tigers, and take camel rides.

Staff said there's something for everyone to enjoy.

"A lot of the kids want to interact with animals, so they can put their hands on the goats, the cows, the llamas, and learn about that stuff. But it's not every day you get to see black leopard or a white tiger, or even interact with a white faced capuchin," said owner Robert Engesser.

The attraction will be open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. through Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
