This year you can enjoy the beauty of the Zoo through the winter holidays! On Fridays and Saturdays in December, we’re extending our hours until 6:30 p.m. so you can stop by in the afternoon or after work for a stroll under thousands of twinkling lights. Visit cold-weather creatures, enjoy family activities and Wildlife Theater in the Zoo gallery, and watch the animals unwrap seasonal treats during holiday enrichment sessions.

Also enjoy holiday shopping at the Zootique, take a family holiday photo, and treat yourself to roasted marshmallows, candy apples, and hot apple cider. Activities take place 2:00–6:30 p.m.
