What better way to spend a summer evening than at the Milwaukee County Zoo? The Zoo is open late on six Wednesday evenings. A different live band will play each week from 6:15 to 8:45 p.m. Many animals will be outside, and the animal buildings will be open until 8:45 p.m. (the bird building closes at dusk). The special summer exhibit, BUGS! Larger than Life, sponsored by Sendik’s Food Markets, will be open (exhibit is $2.50 per person). Purchase dinner from the Zoo’s Flamingo Café or Lakeview Restaurant, or bring a picnic and dine alfresco. The Zoo closes at its regular weekday time of 5 p.m. and then reopens at 6 p.m. for these evenings.

Here’s the music lineup:

  • June 29: Michael and the Bystanders
  • July 6: Party Anthem
  • July 13: Dirty Boogie
  • July 20: Downtown Harrison
  • July 27: 3D
