Akron Zoo Wild for Wine

Written by

The Akron Zoo has many things to offer to the people of northeast Ohio and it is one of my favorite places to visit.  Of course they have great educational programs for children.  Perhaps you have a child or grandchild who has participated in one the many opportunities for kids, but what I love is the Akron Zoo has many events for the adults, where everyone must be over 21, including the designated driver and children and infants are not allowed at all.  This is about one of those.

This Saturday, the Akron Zoo presents Wild for Wine.  Upon your arrival at the Zoo, grab your wine glass and prepare to enjoy a night full of fun.  Tickets for Wild for Wine include your wine glass to use and take home, appetizers (while supplies last), 9 wine tastings and live music.

Wild for Wine will also feature animal art in action sessions.  At designated times, a few of the Zoo's animal ambassadors will show off their Van Gogh skills.  The Zoo will be selling and drawing raffle tickets for each time slot, so you can try your luck at winning the chance to choose the colors selected and take home that painting from one of the wonderful animals.  If you don't win, don't worry, The Akron Zoo Education Team will have more animal art of different sizes and styles available for purchase.  Just think I could decorate the "Cat Room" at my house with animal art.

This event is rain or shine.  Reservations are required.  This is a limited capacity event, so please purchase tickets in advance.

It's time to go Wild for Wine at the Akron Zoo this Saturday.....but if you are like me, you will have to bring your own paper bag and straw.
