Hopefully you’ve been following along for my 2017 #IndyZoob journey! It started here, as I worked to get noticed, and got really exciting here when I found out I was selected to cover animal conservation. It’s been an amazing couple of weeks revising the zoo (animal photos and videos on Instagram), and last night the event finally arrived!
What I immediately lovd about the Indianapolis Zoo’s Zoobilation event, presented by Indianapolis Power & Light Company, is that everyone attending can have a different experience. It’s amazing the people you run into (see pictures below) while exploring the grounds and tasting your way through the event! It’s also amazing how quickly the event passes. With a variety of drink stations (shoutout to the Deep Eddy’s Vodka team that created “The Casey” – a vodka inspired Arnold Palmer), delicious food samples (Shula’s Steak House, I’ll see you soon) and free stages filled with some amazing local artists (Jennie DeVoe, I love you!) – you almost have to hustle to see everything the event has to offer. Or, you just make plans to return again!
Before I get to the pictures, because let’s be honest, you really just want to see the pictures. I’ve got to take a moment to extend my sincerest thanks to the Indianapolis Zoo and the Zoobilation event team. The opportunity to attend this event and talk about it on my social media platforms has been so much fun, and I’m grateful to have been on the team! Carla, Liz, Alise, Dianna (and probably others I haven’t had the chance to meet yet), thank you for your guidance and for creating this opportunity.
Now, here’s a snapshot of my night! Special thanks to my plus one for his patience and photography skills and my glam team who helped me achieve a comfortable and chic look for the event.
Get the look.
