Photos: Zoo Tunes features camel rides and country music (August 11)
Perhaps most importantly, there was also beer.
DALLAS The Dallas Zoo is trying out a new concert series that takes place smack in the middle of their animal exhibits. On Saturday, the first Zoo Tunes featured local bands The King Bucks and Grant Jones & The Pistol Grip Lassos. Kids of all ages and parents grooved to The King Bucks' rockabilly while getting to pet lorikeets and ride camels.
Patrons were permitted to bring lawn chairs, blankets and coolers. Beer and wine were available for purchase, and food trucks fed hungry zoo-goers.
The next Zoo Tunes concert is September 14 and features The Rolling Stones tribute band Satisfaction.
