Despite the rain, it was all smiles last night at WaZoo, Lowry Park Zoo’s annual beer fest. One night a year, Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo is transformed into a beer drinker’s paradise. Brewery tents take over the zoo, providing beer tastings from around the world. Below is just a small sampling of those in attendance at last night’s event.
As you enter Lowry Park Zoo, employees hand out plastic cups for beer tasting.
Beer tents and tables were arranged around the carousel, pictured here, and around Manatee Circle.
