Zoo Lights Celebration Continues

Reid Park Zoo's annual display of Christmas lights will help put you in the holiday spirit, with jingle bells, twinkling lights, falling snow, and Santa. Light displays, animal-themed light sculptures, and thousands of sparkling bulbs are part of the Zoo Lights holiday tradition.

Camel and carousel rides are open during the event for an additional fee. Free cookies are provided each night, and hot cocoa is available for $1.

Zoo officials say animals have access to heated night houses and likely will choose to be off exhibit.

Zoo Lights is open from 6-8 p.m., through Dec. 23, with an encore Dec. 26-27. Admission is $9 for adults and $5 for kids between the ages of 2 and 14. Children under 2 years old are free. Zoo members receive a $2 discount.
