Beer lovers got to enjoy some Oktoberfest libations while supporting the Mill Mountain Zoo Sunday.

Daleville's Town Center was the spot to be for live music by The Stone Canyon Band, craft beers and wine.

Rock and Roll Diner provided all kinds of food including the traditional German sausages.

All through the year, the zoo holds several events to help raise money to keep the zoo operating.

Organizers say today's event went right along with the others held earlier in the year.

"We've been trying to have different events for the zoo and we had a whole music program this summer at the zoo and this just seemed like a natural add on in the fall," Ray Correia told Your Hometown News Leader.

Some of the proceeds from today's event will go towards funding zoo programs.
