Who will be Hogle Zoo's one millionth visitor this year?

Though it has come close in its 78-year history, the zoo has never reached 1 million visitors in a year. But zoo officials anticipate hitting that number before the end of 2009.

"Last year we came so close to this milestone when our attendance hit 996,070," said zoo spokeswoman Holly Braithwaite. "We are excited to reach one million visitors and are grateful for the support of our community, especially in these challenging economic times."

The lucky visitor will receive prizes including a 10-year family zoo membership; a $500 shopping spree at zoo shops; a one-night Park City getaway; two adult ski lift passes and a one-year supply of ice cream.
