Melbourne Zoo Block Party
If you're finding it hard to wait until January for the Zoo Twilights concert series at Melbourne Zoo, here's something to tide you over.
Melbourne's favourite party-animal DJ crew Animals Dancing is hosting a series of block parties over three Saturdays in November at Carousel Park in the Melbourne Zoo. Known for wide-ranging Balearic selections that include house, '80s obscurities and a heavy dose of tropical humidity, Animals Dancing sets are ideal hip-shakers for the warmer months. Big-screen visuals for the events will come from ACMI's archives.
If you need a break from the dance floor you can stack up a game of giant Jenga, get your hands on a pointy grey Nintendo 64 controller for a game of Mario Kart, or check out the National Geographic 50 Greatest Wildlife Photographs outdoor exhibition.
Proceeds from the events will go towards Zoos Victoria's mission to save 21 local threatened species.
November 10, 17 and 24 from 6pm to 9pm.
