SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - Potawatomi Zoo hosted its Roars and Pours Family Night Thursday with
activities for the whole family, including a showing of the movie "Zootopia."

People in attendance also got the chance to see zookeepers feed some of the animals.

Zookeepers also spoke about new exhibits coming to the zoo, such as the North American porcupine, red panda and the Chacoan peccary.

It's a once-a-month occasion that's part of a family series of events.

"This is a really great event that we have here at the zoo that gives people the chance to see the zoo in a different way, in the evening, when animals act a little different," marketing and communications manager Kristina Barroso Burrell said. "So, we love having people here in the after-hours."

Thursday night's event was sponsored by U93 and the Round Barn Winery, Brewery and Distillery.
