You're invited to ring in the holiday season at the Zoo’s annual celebration, Jungle Bells. The Zoo will be transformed into a wild wonderland with twinkling lights, animal-shaped light sculptures, special animal experiences and holiday-themed entertainment, including music, high-flying acrobats, the zany Dr. Zoolittle and the Zoo’s costumed characters. Santa, the jolly ol’ elf himself, will be there too, through Dec. 25!
Something new has been added this year: Aurora—a multi-sensory winter spectacular with lights, projections, music and more—will transport guests to a world they’ve never seen before, filled with wonder, wildlife, and winter charm.
Guests also can enjoy tasty holiday treats at the Zoo’s many restaurants and food stands. Don’t miss out on holiday shopping at the Zoo’s retail locations, or the holiday happy hour at Albert’s Restaurant—Happy Holidays Happens—with discounted drinks and appetizers available from 3-5 p.m. each day of Jungle Bells.
