Zoolumination: Chinese Festival of Lights

Come see the Zoo in a whole new light and enjoy the country’s largest Chinese lantern festival. Over 500 custom-made silk lanterns will be spread across 60 acres, creating elaborate displays with some of your favorite Zoo animals, holiday-themed scenes and even a 200-foot-long dragon.

 

Chinese Culture

Chinese acrobats and entertainers will perform nightly. Hand-made crafts and delicious menu items will be available each night for guests to enjoy.  

North Pole Village

This life-size creation of Santa’s village features multiple buildings and a train made entirely out of lanterns, plus holiday trees and festive lights make this a must-see.

Santa will visit each night until Dec. 23. Local bands and choirs will perform holiday music on select nights.
