Visit Oakland Zoo for our annual Holiday event, ZooLights!
Stroll the Zoo after hours to see dozens of colorfully-themed animal structures, see the amazing meadow light show, take the kids to the candy caned-themed rides area and grab some of our new snack-sized appetizers being served throughout the park.
Come see what’s new this year! Hundreds of thousands of LED lights will brighten Oakland’s night sky for ZooLights. Highlights of this family friendly event include a candy cane lane themed rides area, a night time adventure on the Outback Express Adventure Train, rocking around the Christmas trees in the Wayne and Gladys Valley Children’s Zoo, and a light show that’s sure to blow out any bah hum bugs. Right now, Zoo elves are decking the halls of the Reptile Room with mistletoe and all things jolly. Plus, this year we’ve also added a holiday-themed storybook maze geared towards youngsters. New snack sized appetizers will also be served throughout the park. Besides being sweet, ZooLights is a family oriented evening, filled with traditional activities, designed to help one make merry memories of the winter season.
November 29, 2013 through January 4, 2014 from 5:30pm to 9:00pm
This event is not included with regular Zoo admission. ZooLights is an evening fundraiser for the animals and requires additional admission.
