During this time for the price of $7 to $11, ticket-holders can experience a wholly unique perspective of the zoo at night in the company of family and friends. It is a time of relaxation, memories and comfort.

Stretching over more than thirty-eight acres, Zoo Lights showcases over 150 animated light displays and vibrant lights of every color draped from tree to tree, creating a spectacular illusion of brilliant starlight. Walking through the zoo, it is hard to ignore the sense of warmth radiating from the countless bulbs, and the closeness with friends and family that they encourage. The ubiquitous cold of the night melts away under the subtle comfort of Zoo Lights.

It is not only an opportunity to witness the cultures of diverse peoples and bond with family and friends, but also a time to laugh, let loose, relive the innocence of childhood, grab a drink of hot chocolate and calmly stroll underneath a canopy of light.
