Join the Phoenix Zoo at the Valley’s brightest holiday tradition: ZooLights presented by SRP! Energy, will light up the sky for its 26th season on Wednesday, November 22, 2017, and every evening thereafter through January 14, 2018. ZooLights shines with millions of twinkling and dancing  lights, a three-story-high holiday tree, photos with Santa, hundreds of glimmering light displays and lakeside music-in-motion shows.

Returning to ZooLights this year are pals Tortuga, the talking Galápagos tortoise and Jengo the talking giraffe who entertain guests with their quick wit and amazing knowledge. New this year; look for several 3-D displays including a giant cupcake, candy pieces and carrots for the family of illuminated rabbits. Also new to ZooLights; anteater and beetle armatures as well as a larger than life Utahraptor lighted display to represent the Zoo’s newest exhibit, Dinosaurs in the Desert. Enjoy traditional favorites such as the elephant and giraffe families, the 3-D snake, tiger, scorpion and the swinging primates. Experience camel rides, carousel, Stingray Bay, and be sure to see Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer shine bright in the Zoo’s 4-D Theater.  All experiences and activities are open for an additional fee during ZooLights.
