POCATELLO — Join the animals for a night under the stars on May 14th, when Zoo Idaho hosts “Wildlife Waltz,” an event full of entertainment.

Wildlife Waltz is a gala and auction, which will feature many Idaho-native animals, prizes, great food, and local artists, including music from DJ personality Kelley Martinez. Food will include hors d’oeuvres, dinner (including a vegetarian option), and dessert catered by The Sand Trap.

The event will be held between 6 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.

“Many of our animals like to come out at night, so guests could enjoy some unique zoo encounters not usually seen during the day,” Zoo Idaho officials said in a news release.

There will be a silent auction with local business offerings, unique items, and exclusive Zoo Idaho experiences. A live raffle will also be held, which will offer an up-close experience with zoo animals.

“Have you ever wanted to be a part of a close-up grizzly bear feeding? Well, now you could have the opportunity to win this prize during our live raffle. This will also include a training demo with a zookeeper,” officials said in the release. “This enchanted event will be a night to remember for the rest of the year!”

Tickets are on sale and can be purchased here at Eventbrite or by calling Zoo Idaho at (208) 234-6264.
