No school, longer days, and no homework. Summer is made for kids. But this annual members-only Zoological Society event is made for the whole family. You're invited to one of three after-hours nights at the Milwaukee County Zoo. Family-friendly activities, live entertainment, and scrumptious food await you—and, of course, the Zoo animals. Many start to get active as the sun begins to set, and the entire Zoo will be open for this prime animal viewing time (the Herb & Nada Mahler Family Aviary will close at dusk). You'll also get half-price admission to the Zoo's special summer exhibit, Sting Ray & Shark Bay, sponsored by Sendik's Food Markets. The $1 member admission price starts at 5:15 p.m. every day of the event (Zoological Society of Milwaukee members must present their Zoo Pass card and photo ID for reduced admission).

As you make your way through the Zoo, check out the live entertainment that awaits you. Kohl's Wild Theater will have shows at 7 p.m. each night in the farm area. Your little ones can join the band with UB the Band on the Briggs & Stratton Zoo Terrace Stage. Hear DJ Tim Sledge play your favorite hits on the Flamingo Patio stage. For a rockin' performance, make your way to The Rock Shop at the Ralph Evinrude Landing Stage. If the kids haven't worn you out yet, head to the Peck Welcome Center for Mad Science, Karate America demonstrations and animal-themed crafts. In the U.S. Bank Gathering Place you can watch the Main Street Song and Dance Troupe perform.

With all that's going on, you're sure to work up an appetite. Luckily, a variety of options will satisfy even the pickiest eaters. Indulge in barbeque from Saz's Catering. Whet your appetite with Asian delights from Wong's Wok. Try some zesty pizza from Palermo's® Pizza or enjoy dinner from some of Milwaukee's favorite food trucks: Eats & Treats, The Fast Foodie, LLC, Five Star Nachos, and the Gouda Girls.

Find gifts for the zoo lover in your life at the Zoological Society's Extravaganzoo Sale in the U.S. Bank Gathering Place. Here you can find ZSM T-shirts, plush-toy animals, and animal sponsorship packages.
