Zoo's Halloween party get a little too wild?
The National Zoo's director has sent a letter of apology to the facility's Cleveland Park neighbors who complained about a recent Halloween party said to be so loud it could be heard blocks away, All Life Is Local reports.
Dennis W. Kelly sent a letter to the zoo's neighbors apologizing for any disturbance that might have been caused during the Night of the Living Zoo event. The zoo held the fundraising event on the night of Oct. 29. It featured palm readers, fire eaters and music from Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, named one of the best new bands of 2010 by Rolling Stone Magazine.
Neighbors apparently were not big fans of the the party or the band. They took to the Cleveland Park listserv to complain.
Kelly said in his letter that the zoo will not hold any events past 11 p.m. "except in rare and extraordinary circumstances."
