Dress as the most dastardly criminal master-mind or daring spy, detective, or secret agent. Please leave your weapons (real and fake) at home, but make sure you dress to kill! And remember, safari attire is always appropriate for Zoofari Ball. 


Local double agents, a.k.a. King Bee, provide plenty of opportunities for mayhem on the dance floor. 


It's no cover story: Zoo Catering Services by Rincon will dazzle you with wild cuisine and civilized service, bountiful buffets, and swoon-worthy desserts. 


Start the evening off shaken, not stirred as your covert operation commences. Zoofari Ball boasts full bars that pour freely throughout the evening.
