When you think of the Los Angeles Zoo, certain things come to mind: animals, exhibits, lots of walking, & kids. Well things are about to change. On June 26, July 24, & August 21, the L.A. Zoo will be having an adults-only summer music series, Roaring Nights! Expect indie bands, DJs, full bars, and L.A.’s favorite food trucks. You might also get the chance to meet zookeepers and have a couple animal encounters. Within the event, you can also attend the “Animal Artistry Paint Party.” You’ll be able to paint your favorite animal on a canvas to take home as a souvenir. The L.A. Zoo has what you need to celebrate your Summer nights away!
