Editor's Pick: 

The folks at the LA Zoo keep the magic going through this weekend. (They're such party animals!)

Zoo Lights is an evening holiday light display interspersed throughout the exhibits and enclosures of the LA Zoo. The event transforms select areas of the zoo into a fantastical wonderland of glowing light animals rendered in LED lights, 3D projections, giant illuminated snowflakes, a disco ball forest, and glittering twinkle tunnels. New features this year include a a dynamic, musical holiday tree experience, a reimagined water show, a glittering “North Pole” setting for Santa photos, glowing “Northern Lights” featuring animal constellations that come to life, and an all-new “Wild Wonderland” finale spotlighting endangered and vulnerable species.

LAIR again is a focal point of the Zoo Lights experience, with the amphibeans, reptiles and insects on display throughout the evening.  (LAIR also offers respite from the elements on a cool night).

Santa is available for photo ops on select nights. Photos with Santa require an additional fee and are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Long lines are possible.

Other options this year:  unlimited-visits season pass, Holiday Happy Hours for the 21 and up crowd, and an all-ages Family New Year's Eve.

LA Zoo Lights runs after regular zoo operating hours; admission to LA Zoo Lights is separate from general admission. Special preview week online only pricing is $10 for adult & child tickets, (for attendance Nov 17-22).

LA Lights runs from November 17 - January 7, 2018.

Please note: reindeer and the LAIR creatures are the only animals available for viewing during this event, (though others have been known to peek their heads out to see what all the fuss is about!)  The daytime Reindeer Romp offers an option for holiday cheer with more animals present).

Allow 60 - 90 minutes for this self-guided experience.  Zoo Lights is a rain-or-shine event.   Here's what we had to say about our Zoo Lights experience in a previous year
