Have you ever been to the San Antonio Zoo? Even if you have, I doubt you’ve seen it ever look as spectacular as it does this Christmas season! For the first time ever the zoo has a Holiday lights display: Zoo Nights Holiday Lights at the San Antonio Zoo!
It truly is spectacular. The boys and I watched the YouTube video showing off all the different lights and events and we can’t wait to attend. We are planning to go Christmas week. Be sure you are following me on Instagram and Periscope because I’ll be sharing as we go.
There’s so much to see and do! I love that the animals themselves were the inspiration for many of the displays. There are lots of stripes and spots and beautifully lit walkway. You can wander through KaLIGHToscope, HoliZoo, Frozen Fun, Zoominaria and other areas aglow in the holiday spirit. You can even venture through Cut Tree Forest to the North Pole where you can visit with Santa and get your picture taken, too!
Visit with Mrs. Claus and decorate cookies with her in Mrs. Claus’s Kitchen. Of course the carousel is running and all aglow. Then grab a cub of steaming hot cocoa and ride the train. It will be an experience to remember!
One thing I absolutely love about Zoo Nights Holiday Lights at the San Antonio Zoo is the Wishing Tree! This truly embraces the meaning of the holidays. There is a special Wishing Tree filled with ornaments in the Beastro Restaurant. Each ornament represents one student’s trip to the Zoo given by a generous zoo guest like you! For just $10, guests can sponsor an ornament and help a child experience the zoo!
Zoo Nights Holiday Lights at the San Antonio Zoo is open nightly from 6pm to 10pm. It is closed on December 24 and December 25 but otherwise it runs through January 3. During Zoo Lights Holiday Nights, the Zoo will close at 4 p.m. for general admission, and re-open for Zoo Lights ticket holders at 6 p.m.
Admission to Zoo Nights Holiday Lights at the San Antonio Zoo is $8.25 for members; $12.25 for non-members. Tickets available in advance online. For more information, visit www.sazoo.org.
