Wild About Wines at the Roosevelt Park Zoo

Posted: Updated:

A few raindrops Thursday evening didn't stop hundreds of people from heading to the Roosevelt Park Zoo to enjoy the animals, and taste some good wine.

Booths were set up at various stations around the zoo as part of the Annual Wild About Wines event. People could taste all different kinds of wines, eat some delicious food, and get a glimpse at some of the cool animals the zoo has to offer.

There was also a silent auction inside the zoo's main building where people could bid on cool prizes.

The Minot Zoo Crew says the proceeds make the zoo a better place.

"All of the money that we make at any of these events goes directly back to the zoo," said Staci Kenney, the Executive Director of the Minot Zoo Crew, "so that's bringing in new animals, enhancing the exhibits, putting on all of these great events we do for the community, so it comes right back to the community, so it's really great."

The event sold out all of its over 500 tickets yesterday.

This is the second year in a row that the event has run since the zoo came back after the 2011 flood.

The Roosevelt Park Zoo will stay open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. through September, weather permitting.
