Guests to The Hattiesburg Zoo on the evening of September 29th will be watching the setting sun while sipping on some rum at the second annual Rum Under the Sun event. Rum Under the Sun will be held from 6:30 – 9:30 p.m., and is an adult-only (21+) event. Advanced tickets are $15 and $20 at the gate (if available).
Caribbean music including Reggae, Calypso, Salsa and Mambo will welcome guests, and entertain them through the night. Guests will be proclaiming, "Yes, man! We in di lime tonight."
And what would Rum Under the Sun be without Caribbean Island rums? High-end rum flights will be served in a private Cigar and Rum Bar, THE PALM, located behind Safari Grill where rum and cigar aficionados will sip on specialty Rums and puff on high-end Cigars made available through The Leaf Cigar Company. The night will also highlight flavorful Caribbean foods.
Guests will be Pompasetting (SHOWING OFF) as they compete in the limbo contest to see “how low they can go,” and the Splash Pad will be flowing to keep guests cool. The Tortuguero Train will also be rolling past the wildlife throughout the evening for guests to enjoy.
