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. 

Animal Paradise

Chinese artists have reimagined your favorite zoo animals in a bright and colorful way. See lantern displays of rhinos, giraffes, elephants and dozens more in uniquely themed animal and flower scenes throughout the Zoo.

Plus, select animal exhibits will be open late, including Sumatran tiger, Andean bear, Carribean flamingos and Unseen New World.
