Summer's here and the time is right for dancin' in the...Zoo! In the late afternoon and summer evening hours, the San Diego Zoo moves to a different beat. There will be plenty of toe-tapping, body-moving music in a variety of sounds and styles-rock tunes through the decades; festive mariachi melodies; a brass band; smooth, rocking, a cappella harmonies and more! An astonishing acrobatic trampoline show will keep things hopping, and Dr. Zoolittle's Music Factory will be open for zany fun and exploration. End your evening with a spectacular music, light, and video experience at the newly remodeled Wegeforth Bowl. There's so much to do, see, and hear at Nighttime Zoo-it's a good thing summer hours are longer!
