–Cheyenne Mountain Zoo’s adults-only evening is sure to be the WILDEST event in town tonight–

June 30, 2016, Colorado Springs, CO – Moonlight on the Mountain, one of Cheyenne Mountain Zoo’s adult-only events, is tonight, Thursday, June 30. The event will go on rain or shine! Attendance is restricted to adults 21 and over. Tickets include unlimited samples of beer, wine, spirits and soft drinks, as well as delicious eats from area restaurants. Plus, local musicians will set the mood throughout the Zoo and have guests dancing the night away until 10 p.m.!

No Zoo event would be complete without animals. Animal exhibits will be open until 8 p.m., so guests can experience the full Zoo experience (minus kids, of course), get hands on with animals from The Loft, feed the giraffes ($3) and watch special keeper talks and animal demonstrations.

Tickets for Moonlight on the Mountain sold out two weeks ago, but the Zoo is offering two more adult-only events this summer – Tails, Tunes & Tapas! The event will be offered on both Thursday, July 28 and Thursday, August 25 (tickets sold separately) from 6 – 9:30 p.m. Tails, Tunes & Tapas will feature the full Zoo experience, live music, and cash food and drink stations. Visit www.cmzoo.org/tails for details.

Both Moonlight on the Mountain and Tails, Tunes and Tapas are great ways to help the Zoo care for and feed more than 750 animals while also getting to enjoy some great food, drinks and local musicians.

Cheyenne Mountain Zoo’s Moonlight on the Mountain is sponsored by Children’s Hospital Colorado, Bestway Disposal and Cordera.
