A roaring good time at Minnesota Zoo's 'wildly chic' Beastly Bash
The annual fundraiser for the Minnesota Zoo changed its spots this year. Instead of formalwear, guests at the Beastly Bash wore "wildly chic" attire, including animal prints, tropical tops and Bermuda shorts. More than 650 humans took part in the outdoor celebration of wildlife. There were some beasts invited to the bash, as well. An African crested porcupine meandered about as reptiles, birds and other critters were brought out for meet and greets. Proceeds will fund education programs for children and families.
