This past Saturday, the Philadelphia Zoo held its annual OktoBEARfest. More than 500 guests attended the after-hours event at the zoo and enjoyed entertainment, dancing, yard games, and animal and zookeeper meet and greets. With 100-plus craft beers to sample, guests also enjoyed the offerings from 10 food trucks, including Cow and the Curd, Waffles & Wedges, Lil’ Pop Shop, Nick’s Roast Beef and Hai Street Kitchen, which offered pay-as-you-go selections. OktoBEARfest serves as a fundraiser and supports Philadelphia Zoo in its mission to create joyful discovery and inspire action for animals and habitats.
