Beautiful light display among the zoo animals. Great fun with various activities such as local groups performing carols and s’more’s by the fire pit. Awesome way to spend with family and friends to celebrate the holiday season.

Tip: If you would like to see the animals go early about 4:00pm prior to feeding time and before it gets dark. Once it gets dark not much animal activity.
