"A different kind of wildlife takes over the L.A. Zoo for Roaring Nights" is what the advertisement says and boy were they right. Wild party animals took over the LA Zoo's roaring Nights this last Friday night for 90's night; dressed in their loudest 90's ensembles, bright colored tops, shorts, sneakers, flannels, glow sticks, light up shoes and more. It was like being in the opening title sequence of the "Fresh Price of Bel Air".
Wild party goers where there for the D.J., live bands, games, full bars, and food trucks.
The fun was scattered throughout the zoo. The children's playground was the game and main food truck area, right before entering the World of Birds Theater which was the area the live band concert took place. There was plenty of stadium seating to enjoy your food and the live music.
If you wanted to get up and shake out your inner wild animal then head on over to the Elephants of Asia area where the D.J was set up. For 90's night it was R&B hits that had everyone bumpin their grind.
of course all that dancing made people hungry and thirsty. The bars were everywhere throughout the zoo to quench thirsty animals and popular L.A. food trucks to feed the animal in you.
There was even an art area to show the animal artistry in you .
plus pop-up zoo keeper talks, special animal encounters, and—for the 2016 season only—the chance to experience Dinosaurs: Un-extinct at the L.A. Zoo! An experience you'd normally have to pay more for and you get to experience it at night!
You missed 90's Night, but Here's a list of upcoming shows!
You’ll have a good ol’ time tush pushin’ to hits from Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, and many more performed live by local favorite Highway Starr. Find your country groove with line-dancing lessonsand test your horseshoe and cornhole skills at the backyard BBQ-style game lawn.
The high-energy antics of Black Crystal Wolf Kids will have you singing along to the best indie tracks ever—from the likes of Hozier, The Black Keys, Pavement, and The Pixies.
Back by popular demand is a most “tubular” night. You’ll have a “radical” time playing vintage video games as well as dancing and singing along to new wave, metal, and old-school hip hop tracks, and more. Fashions of the era are strongly encouraged.
