POCATELLO — Join the animals for a night under the stars on May 14, when the Idaho Zoo hosts “Wildlife Waltz,” a fun-filled event.
Wildlife Waltz is a gala and auction, which will feature many native Idaho animals, prizes, great food and local artists, including music from personality DJ Kelley Martinez. Food will include appetizers, dinner (including a vegetarian option) and dessert prepared by The Sand Trap.
The event will take place between 6 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.
“Many of our animals enjoy going out at night, so guests can enjoy unique zoo encounters not typically seen during the day,” Idaho Zoo officials said in a news release.
There will be a silent auction featuring local trade offerings, unique items and exclusive experiences at the Idaho Zoo. A live raffle will also take place, which will provide an up-close experience with the zoo animals.
“Have you ever wanted to be part of a close-up feeding grizzly bear? Well, now you could have the chance to win this prize in our live raffle. This will also include a training demonstration with a zookeeper” , officials said in the statement, “This enchanted event will be an evening to remember for the rest of the year!”
