ZooLights is set to dazzle visitors of all ages when it opens for the holiday season on Thanksgiving (November 27). This winter wonderland attracts thousands of visitors each year who get into the holiday spirit by strolling along tree-lined paths lit by thousands of twinkling lights. Upon entering Stone Zoo, guests will visit Yukon Creek, which not only features dazzling holiday lights, but is also home to bald eagles, North American porcupines, Canada lynx (including three kittens born earlier this year), reindeer and arctic foxes. Guests of all ages will have the opportunity to meet Stone Zoo’s reindeer up close during the nightly photo opportunities.* Children will want to make sure they visit with Santa, who awaits their arrival in Santa’s Castle. Jolly Old St. Nick will be available for photos through Dec. 23. After visiting with Santa, enter a magical holiday world filled with fairy tale characters and dancing plush animals. * Please note: The reindeer photo opportunities are subject to change at any time due to the animals’ needs and the weather.
