Tickets can be also bought online, so you need not worry more so because the tickets are good for any day between December 1st and December 31st. Daily times are 5:30pm to 9pm (Be sure to check the official site for closed days and more details). This will be a month-long celebration that starts by switching the lights on December 1st, 5:30 pm and ends with a New Year’s countdown using the Zoo’s very own lighted counted display.

And not only the lights, there are many other activities that you and your kids will enjoy. Some of these are kids’ craft, ice carving, and caroling. Activities will vary each night, and these are free as it is included in the Zoo Light admission ticket.
