We've been at this Tunes & Blooms things for a while now, and this year, we're stretching out a bit. So, tonight is Reggae Night at the Zoo! The weather is beautiful, the tulips are in full bloom, and it's going to be another amazing night of music and family fun at the Cincinnati Zoo.
Now in its 8th season, Tunes & Blooms has become one of WNKU's favorite annual events. It occurs every Thursday night in April and features some of the best musical acts our region has to offer playing amongst the tulips of the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden. Each week, the Zoo dispenses with the usual admission fee at 5pm allowing visitors to roam the animal exhibits for free before settling down to enjoy live music from 6p to 8p. Bring a picnic or choose from the excellent food options available on site. They even serve local micro-brews at the Zoo.
We have several great thank you gifts for our year-end membership campaign, including a package made especially for families who live in Cincinnati or those families from out of town that have made an annual tradition of visiting Cincinnati for the holidays.
Tunes & Blooms truly is the place to be Thursday night's in April. Last week, we set a new attendance record at Tunes & Blooms with The Tillers and Shiny & the Spoon. Over 4300 people came through the gates of the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Gardens to soak up the beautiful weather and hear some of the best local talent our region has to offer. Tonight will be no different as we welcome back perennial favorites Jake Speed & the Freddies and The Turkeys for the series finale.
