Zootoberfest at ZooMontana

BILLINGS -

If you need something to do with the kids this weekend or maybe you're just a big kid yourself and want to have some fun, here's an idea.

The first ever Zootoberfest will be held at ZooMontana this Saturday. It will be a full-day event, starting at 10 AM. Lots of entertainment will be available for the kids, including games, a bounce house, and a German music band, as well as all the usual critters.

The zoo will close at 5, and re-open at 6 for those 21 and up, with 3 live bands and a 30-brew taste test.

"All proceeds from Zootoberfest actually do come back to the Zoo and basically what that's going to help us do, is it's going into our operating income to help us, basically feed the animals," says Jeff Ewelt, Director of ZooMontana.

Tickets will be $7 for adults and $4 dollars for kids under 12.
