Yearly the Pittsburgh Zoo throws a Summer Safari party where guests are invited to spend the evening eating and drinking their way through the zoo.  As the sun was setting, guests made their way leisurely through the zoo, drinks in hand from the open bar, stopping to admire the animals who weren’t shying away from the attention.

Throughout the night the music got louder and zoo-goers weren’t shy about communicating with some of their favorite animals.  You can see the the penguins at the PPG Aquarium, obviously a favorite of the Pittsburgh crowd, being coaxed to jump into the water in the video I took below.   Zookeepers walked around with a few of the smaller animals– I made friends with a snake while my sister was elated to meet an adorable Fennec Fox

By the end of the night, the crowd gathered on the dance floor feeling like VIPs closing out the after-hours experience at the beautiful Pittsburgh Zoo.
