PORTLAND — With a focus on nocturnal animals, the Oregon Zoo is hosting Twilight Tuesdays once a month through the summer.
The Carpe P.M. event is the third Tuesday of each month from 4-8:30 p.m. Admission is $5 at that time. The July 18 event includes kids’ activities, animal petting and live entertainment featuring the Ben Rice Band, who is deeply rooted in traditional and original blues, from 5-8 p.m. In addition, there’s a Howl & Meow contest from 6:15-6:30 p.m.
The Oregon Zoo is located off Highway 26, five minutes from downtown Portland. For more information, visit www.oregonzoo.org/events/twilight-tuesday.
