Zoogoers can safely enjoy this year’s Holiday Magic by strolling along the many pathways, lit with more than one million twinkling LED lights, including through a brilliantly lit 600-foot-long tunnel featuring thousands of colored lights all synchronized to music.

Additional dazzling light displays include a giant 20-foot-lit orb, where guests can stand inside to take a memorable holiday photo, a 41-foot tree, and larger-than-life illuminated animal sculptures of a bison, bear, and giraffe. The zoo's malls and Roosevelt Fountain are all decked out for the holidays, thanks to local community organizations and corporations that decorated 660 LED-lit trees with ornaments, many of them homemade.

New this year, guests of all ages can play the Game of Gnomes. Embark on a fun-filled scavenger hunt in search of 24 whimsical and enchanting themed gnomes, measuring 12- to 20-inches-tall that will be located throughout the park.

Dates: Fri.-Sun., Nov. 27-29; Wed.-Sun., Dec. 2-6, 9-13 & 16-20 & Sat.-Thurs., Dec. 26-31.
