ZooLights 2017


See the Zoo in a whole new light! 

Join us on December 15-17, 19-23, 26-30 to experience the wonder of the holiday season and enjoy your 100 acre park, conservation center and Zoo under beautiful and bright lights. ZooLights 2017 takes you on a magical trip to a destination like no other – with Santa Claus, reindeer and seasonal delights. Lovely music will fill the air and bright lights will shine the way as you leave the city behind and retreat to a holiday hideaway.  This annual favorite is free for SFZS Members in good standing.
