Family-friendly evening of live music, food trucks, select animal special feedings, and fun under the stars. The after-hours celebration, themed “An Evening in Brazil,” is sponsored by the hit animated feature film, RIO 2, in celebration of the film’s release on Blu-ray/DVD on July 15th.
The party features samba music and dancing by Brazilian Samba Angels as well as music by Close Encounters, a live karaoke band that invites Zoo guests to perform favorite songs karaoke-style accompanied by the band.
Keeper talks and animal encounters throughout the evening are also included. As guests stroll the grounds to visit exhibits of endangered, rare and exotic animals in the Zoo collection, they're offered a unique opportunity to see some of the Zoo's animals at night, as many animals are more active during later hours.
