An electric guitar wails. A singer's voice carries on the breeze. Drums set the beat. While you might expect the sounds of animals at the Zoo, it's music that will fill six Wednesday nights in June and July at the Milwaukee County Zoo.
Catch a different band each week from 6:15 to 8:45 p.m. at the Flamingo Patio Gazebo stage during this annual summer concert series. Tour the Zoo and visit your favorite animals after hours. Animal buildings will be open until 8:45 p.m. (the aviary closes at dusk). Check out the Zoo's special summer exhibit, Sting Ray & Shark Bay, sponsored by Sendik's Food Markets (exhibit admission is $2 per person). After you've seen and listened to it all, grab a bite to eat from the Zoo's Flamingo Café or Lakeview Place restaurants. Or, pack a dinner and dine alfresco as you enjoy a languid evening at the Zoo with friends and family.
Tri City National Bank customers: Get a free ride on the Penzeys Spices Carousel. Stop in at any branch after June 1 and get a free-ride ticket while supplies last. (Valid June 25, July 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30, 2014, only during evening Sunset Zoofaris. Does not include Zoo admission or parking. One ticket per person per bank visit.)
