Those 21 and over wanting to enjoy the zoo while strolling exhibits with an adult beverage, are getting the chance again as the Henry Doorly Zoo brings back their 'Late Nights at the Zoo' event.
The zoo will host their first 'Late Nights at the Zoo' of the season on Thursday, July 16th from 7:00 PM to 10:30 PM. Attendees can enjoy a drink and food truck fare as they stroll the grounds of Omaha's Zoo.
"Each ticket to Late Nights at the Zoo includes one complimentary drink ticket, access to select Zoo exhibits after-hours, and the ability to purchase cuisine from local food trucks. Additional drink tickets are available for purchase at multiple spots throughout the event area. All guests must be ages 21 and older and must bring a valid, state-issued ID to the event."
The zoo says face masks are strongly encouraged outdoors and required to enter indoor exhibits. "Face masks are available for purchase onsite if a guest does not have one to enter an indoor exhibit. Each Late Nights’ capacity is limited to 3,000 total attendees."
