It's a wonderful event and it is back for the 27th time this Wednesday, August 22nd. It's the Feast with the Beasts at the Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park.

It's your chance to tour the zoo in a way that's different then normal. Talk a walk around and taste food and drink from over 25 New York and Pennsylvania businesses including our friends from Binghamton Hots

While you are enjoying the food and drink samples, you can also enjoy the music of VooDoo Highway, animal ambassador spotlights and don't forget their annual silent auction and basket raffle.

Here's the great thing, if you can't make it on Wednesday, you can bid online now for the different signed memorabilia from musical acts, comedians, sports teams and more. Go here to see the different items and make your bid. Online bidding is available until tonight (8/21) at 10 p.m. and will continue at the event until the the end of the night.

Feast with the Beasts starts at 5:30 p.m. and ends at 8:00 p.m. with the last ticket sold at 7:30 p.m. You can buy them online or at the ticket booth on Wednesday. Here's the best part, you enjoy great food and drink and the proceeds go directly towards supporting the Binghamton Zoo.

The Binghamton Zoo is located at 60 Morgan Road. Maybe I'll wear my Tigger suit, it's one of the few times that I could wear it and not get weird looks.
