The Oregon Zoo is offering visitors a little something extra this summer: A Twilight Tuesday special event each third Tuesday night of the month through August, featuring later hours and fun for all ages at a deep discount.
Both the upcoming Twilight Tuesdays on July 16 and the next event on Aug. 20 will feature animals that are active at dusk, fun activities for families, food and beverages from local vendors and live entertainment. Zoo admission is just $9 per person after 4 p.m.
Also on hand: food carts from local vendors, refreshing drinks and more — plus the ever-popular elephant ears and a selection of local beer and wine for adults.
Twilight Tuesday festivities begin at 4 p.m., and gates stay open until 8 p.m. Visitors may remain on zoo grounds until 9 p.m.
