This summer, we have introduced a new series of events called Twilight Tuesdays in June & July. Basically, we just keep the gates open late so you can enjoy the whole Zoo during cooler summer evenings.
But wait, that's not all! Around 5 pm the party gets started with a live band, dinner specials, beer and wine - centered around a theme that is different each night. We suggest bringing lawn chairs, picnic blankets and making an evening of it. Last admission is at 7 pm, but you are welcome to stay until 8 pm.
