Viewfinder: Zoo Moon a Big Hit with Residents and Vendors

The Zoo Moon brought out not only the nocturnal animals, but more than 1,000 people.

With more than 1,000 visitors, the second annual was deamed a big success by its co-chair Corey Shumaker, education director of .

Shumaker and Melanie Fernandes organized appoximatly 36 vendors to be scattered through-out the zoo and a zoo crew roamed around the zoo to keep all the guests fully informed.

"The zoo crew, who are student volunteers, came early to assist with the vendor set up" Shumaker said. "Then as the visitors arrived they did what they do best–teach others about the animals".

The moon, however, was nowhere to be seen.
