Title: zoomily 2008
Post by: gragravar on August 10, 2008, 09:44:18 AM
every year the denver zoo hosts a family night they call zoomily.  you get into the park after it is closed to normal zoo patrons.  they feed you dinner (and have an open bar).  the kids all dress up as their favorite characters and everyone walks around the zoo looking at animals until it is too dark to see them.  the kids had a blast. 

got one good pic of a cheetah:

and found out that my camera really bites at nighttime distance pics.  those eyes belong to a polar bear.

LOL.  fun evening though. $55 for zoo members got dinner and drinks for a family of 4, and we were free to roam the zoo from 6-9pm. they had the zoo divided into sections. one section had a bunch of dr seuss characters to meet, another had fairy tale characters, etc. the kids got too see the animals, meet characters, ride on the carousel, then got to head home before it got too late.

That polar bear reminds me of Jody from the original Amityville Horror movie.
