El Paso Zoo and Botanical Gardens Hosts In the Zoop: KPOP Night at the Zoo

The El Paso Zoo and Botanical Gardens is celebrating all things KPOP with an In the Zoop: KPOP Night at the Zoo from 6 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, September 10.

Korean pop music, more widely known as KPOP, has become an obsession among teenagers, young adults and even older adults. The popular genre of music that originated in South Korea contains musical influences like hip-hop, electric dance, jazz and rock performed by groups from four to 21 members.

KPOP Night at the Zoo will have a variety of local vendors. Visitors will also have a chance to meet and party with other KPOP stans—ardent fans—by dancing the night away with live music and a DJ. In addition, the El Paso Del Norte American Association of Zookeepers (AAZK) Chapter will be taking song requests with donations supporting the El Paso Zoo Conservation Fund.

The following is a schedule of events:

6:00 p.m. – DJ Thicc Flair @ Splash Pad

6:30 p.m. – Allures Dance Group @ Wildlife Amphitheater

7:00 p.m. – Pie Sisters @ Asia Plaza

8:00 p.m. – Odd Lab Fire Show @ Asia Plaza

Advance tickets are available for purchase at the El Paso Zoo. Tickets will also be available at the door on the day of the event.
