Are you looking for a fun and eventful summer concert series for your family to attend in Orange County? Look no further! The Santa Ana Zoo’s ‘Sunsets at the Zoo’ summer concert series opened on June 12 and continues all summer long. Back by popular demand, the zoo added a fifth concert night to this year’s line up.
During Sunsets at the Zoo, guests are invited to visit some of the zoo animals in a rare after-hours experience as they prepare for their nighttime activities, enjoy live music, a kids’ craft table, silent auction, train/carousel rides, as well as a unique craft brew-tasting experience from a handful of Orange County’s finest craft beer brewers.
The combination of Sunsets at the Zoo and Brew at the Zoo makes for an entertaining event that every generation can enjoy! The atmosphere is cool and casual. Guests are welcome to bring their cameras, a blanket and a picnic dinner or purchase a combo deal for $5 which includes a burger, drink, chips and a popsicle.
