Pacific Northwest Summer Events: Oregon Zoo Evening Concerts #SunsetZoo
This summer, Portland offers up great events for the family at the Oregon Zoo’s annual "Sunset at The Zoo". Taking place every other Wednesday in July and August, the zoo keeps its doors open from 5pm to 8pm, with grounds closing at 9:30. In addition to getting a peek at the zoo’s more nocturnal creatures, visitors get many other activities included with the standard admission price, ranging from crafts and hula hoop lessons for kids to special concerts the whole family can enjoy.
The July 10th concert, "Your Zoo and All That Jazz", presented a fantastic lineup of amazing jazz musicians. The concert is held on a lawn area with a special section in front of the stage where children can dance their hearts out. The aim behind this series is to provide a place where parents can take their kids to enjoy great music and fun in a family-friendly environment. And all of the normal zoo exhibits are available, so there is an incredible amount of entertainment available!
