Pokémon Go Safari Night – Take 2! Aug. 23

Considering the kind of turnout they had for the last one, can you blame the Valley Zoo for wanting to host another one? I hear the weather wasn’t the greatest last time either…

Anyway, check out the event page on Facebook here and read the write-up below.

“Back by popular demand!
You asked us to do it again so we are!

There are new species at the Zoo! You guessed it – Pokemon! Join us for a Safari Night as Pokemon GO fans will get the chance to “catch’em all” at the Edmonton Valley Zoo. While hunting there will be our Market at the Zoo featuring many local vendors, live music, and animal encounters! The Edmonton Valley Zoo has 10 Poke Stops and lures will be activated in the Pokemon Go app all night!

Share the fun, tag your Pokémon screenshots on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with #yegzoo and tag @BuildingOurZoo – best screen shot wins a family pass to come back to the zoo to “catch’em all” another day!
