Zoolights is back at the Calgary Zoo and will be lighting up the holiday season from November 27 through January 2, 2016. One and a half million lights transform the zoo grounds into a magical winter wonderland. You’ll also enjoy musical performances, a new interactive light display, warming fire pits, the Candy Land Kids Zone, and other fun family activities. Santa has come in from the cold; take the kids to visit him at his cozy indoor oasis in the Enmax Conservatory. Bring your skates, or borrow some from the KidsSport Skate Shack on site, and enjoy free ice skating on the undercover ice-rink.
We got this great info from the zoo about all that’s happening:
- Zone 1 – Christmas karaoke on the Savannah lawn and the popular Lovers’ Lane in Destination Africa.
- Zone 2 – Enjoy the magic of Candyland outside of the ENMAX Conservatory including the Lollipop Rock Tree and Friday night chocolate giveaways (plus don’t miss family-owned Canadian chocolate company Ganong on December 12th and 13th). Inside enjoy free visits with Santa (only until Dec. 23).
- Zone 3 – Journey to the Arctic and the Antarctic featuring a unique new interactive light display with a polar bear, inflatable igloos, build your own snowman activity and the wishing tree on the lawn behind Grazers Restaurant.
- Zone 4 – The skating rink returns to the West Lawn complete with free rentals from KidSport Calgary and other activities for kids of all ages. Don’t miss out on a new Sugar Shack to make your own tasty seasonal treat in the snow.
Tickets are available at the gate or online.
Entrance is through the zoo’s north gate only.
