2009 Portland Oregon Zoo Summer Concerts Announced

After a bit of April showers this afternoon, the weather is improving by the minute. If you need anymore proof that summer is on its way, the Oregon Zoo just sent out its Summer Concerts Series email. Tickets go on sale next week for members and enews subscribers. The picture here is from the Wailers concert a couple Summers back. (April 22nd update at the bottom of post)
