Everyone knows that the Oakland Zoo is a great place to spend a Sunday afternoon, but what about Saturday evening? Oakland Zoo is hosting its wildest party of the year, Walk in the Wild, Saturday, June 18 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Guests will enjoy special tastings from some of the area?s finest restaurants, bakeries, breweries and wineries, while spending a special evening with Oakland Zoo?s animal residents. This food and spirits adventure also features a silent auction, dancing and live music from Masterpiece, as well as many other fun activities, like henna tattooing, a didjeridu player and more.
