Riverbanks Zoo and Garden adult guests can let their “hare” down and unwind with the Zoo's all-new, naturally safer, outdoor option for happy hour. Timed tickets are on sale now for Hoppy Hour at the Zoo which will be held Thursday, Oct. 1.

The event will be an adults-only opportunity to soak in the sights and sounds of Riverbanks after-hours. Proceeds support the Zoo’s critical role in animal and plant care and wildlife conservation.

Attractions like the Koala Knockabout and Sea Lion Landing will be open for viewing. Guests can observe the Aquarium-Reptile Complex and the African Savanna, and even take a spin on the Endangered Species Carousel.

Food, brews, and wines will be available for purchase. Full menus also will be offered featuring a variety of appetizing options at some of Riverbanks’ eateries including Watering Hole, Wild Burger, Cones and Kodiak Point.

Hoppy Hour at the Zoo will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. The cost is $7 for Riverbanks members and $10 for the general public. A limited number of tickets are available.

Event parking and park entry will be available on the Zoo side only at 500 Wildlife Parkway in Columbia. Learn more about the event at Riverbanks.org.
