Zoobilation 2014 is an event 28 years in the making. The very
first Zoobilation was held in 1986 at the home of Herb Simon,
where just a few hundred lucky guests gathered to support the
Indianapolis Zoo and celebrate its good work. In the past
quarter-century, the event has ballooned in attendance and
