Santa Ana Zoo Amphitheater

REAL & IMAGINED
When the sun goes down, the predator’s come out, both real and imagined. Spend the evening with Haunted Orange County’s Charles Spratley as he delves into the mind of horror author HP Lovecraft and his mythical creations followed by Travel Channel host, Ben Hanson as he covers his adventures in exploring the world of Cryptozoology including Sasquatch, Yeti, the Chupacabra and others. You'll Learn about their origins, first sightings and possible scientific explanations for these unique and elusive creatures. After the outdoor presentation in the amphitheater, guests will break into smaller groups and experience a night time walk-through of the Zoo and perhaps catch a glimpse of some of its nocturnal residents who prefer to come out after dark.
This is an all outdoor event. Lectures will take place in the outdoor amphitheater which has concrete tiered seating. You are welcome to bring blankets and or seat cushions for your comfort.
A portion of the evening's proceeds go to benefit the Friends of Santa Ana Zoo non-profit.
