The countdown to the holidays is on! For many Calgary families, this magical season is simply not complete without a visit to ZOOLIGHTS, which returns to the The Calgary Zoo to light up the night between November 25th and January 8th. Presented by JSS Barristers, this holiday family favourite really puts the shine on the season, with one and a half million lights transforming the zoo grounds into a magical winter wonderland. And this year, the event features even more family friendly activities!
Within easy-to-navigate activity zones, you’ll enjoy musical performances, a new interactive light display, warming fire pits, and many fun and interactive family activities. Santa comes in from the cold during ZOOLIGHTS; until December 23rd, take the kids to visit him at his cozy indoor oasis in the Enmax Conservatory. Make sure you swing by the Build a Snowman area for the chance to create a life-size snowman from a selection of styles. Bring your skates, or borrow some from the KidsSport Skate Shack on site, and enjoy free ice skating on the undercover ice-rink. On Fridays and Saturdays, there’ll be a DJ spinning tunes for added energy at the rink!
Tickets are $14.99 for adults and $11.99 for kids 3-15 (infants under 3 get in free). Tickets are available at the gate, but you can save time by purchasing in advance online! Parking is $7.
Please note: entrance to ZOOLIGHTS is through the zoo’s north gate only.
Whether you are creating a new holiday tradition or continuing a favourite one, your whole family will love the festive spectacle of ZOOLIGHTS at The Calgary Zoo!
