Kids aren't the only ones who love hanging out and having fun at a zoo. They know this at the Great Plains Zoo in Sioux Falls and that is why they have this fantastic event coming up for adults only!

Zoofari is the Great Plains Zoo's Party of the Summer for grownups! This Thursday, June 27 from 5 to 9 PM at the zoo campus there is going to be a wild time going on with the entire zoo to explore.

Party guests will have the chance to meet ambassador animals, feed giraffes, and farm friends, tour the zoo's vet clinic, be amazed by the traveling Ocean in Motion exhibit, and be the first to meet the zoo's new lions, Simba and Amahle, with an exclusive preview inside the new exhibit.

Plus, Zoofari participants can ask every animal question they have during very special zookeeper chats.

Your Zoofari ticket includes food and one drink ticket. Vespa Catering has created a unique global food and drink menu for this very special occasion.

There are also several fantastic raffle packages you can also get tickets for on the Great Plains Zoo website.

Proceeds from this event will go toward the mission of bringing the Butterfly House & Aquarium to the Great Plains Zoo campus so that the whole wild world will be in one place for the Sioux Falls community to enjoy.

Sioux Falls Area Farmer's Markets

We can finally go outside without our nose hairs freezing! It must be spring in South Dakota. And when the days are warm that means the gardens are growing. It's farmers' market time in Sioux Falls.

Fresh produce, locally made goods, great people, and a good time are found at these farmer's markets around Sioux Falls.
