Melbourne Zoo Block Party

Because a party ain't a party without giraffes.

A block party ain't a block party without giraffes. Or orang-utans. Or elephants. With that in mind, Melbourne Zoo is hosting a series of animal-fuelled block parties throughout November.

Happening for three Saturday nights in November, the shindigs are a collaboration with ACMI and independent radio station 3RRR. Expect to be completely immersed in sound and light, with ACMI hosting spectacular big screen visuals and Animals Dancing DJs getting your feet moving.

In between making shapes, you'll be conquering your mates at giant Jenga, Twister and Mario Kart on Nintendo 64 — or taking a round or two on a carousel. Should all the action have you working up an appetite, take your pick of street eats from a herd of food trucks, and get a drink at the bar.

Just 300 tickets at just 20 bucks a pop are on sale for each event. And all proceeds will go towards Melbourne Zoo's efforts to save 21 threatened species from extinction. It should get you warmed up for the Zoo Twilights, which kick off on January 25.
