Reindeer Romp at the LA Zoo

Sponsored Event


Rudolph’s red nose is shining brightly to help families find their way to the Reindeer Romp happening daily at the LA Zoo this holiday season. The Weekends are the best time to enjoy the holiday fun because Jolly Old Saint Nick brings added fun to the zoo when arriving on his sleigh at the zoo for his weekend break from the chilly North Pole weather.





The fun will begin by visiting the reindeer in reindeer village. Your children will have an opportunity to have all their questions about reindeer answered from a knowledgeable reindeer keeper. Along with the reindeer, there are multiple holiday photo opportunities to capture your favorite memories at the LA Zoo.




Then on the weekends, things start to get “wild.” On Saturdays, there will be ice carving demonstrations, carolers, and on Sundays don’t miss the interactive puppet show and popular band The Satin Dollz. Throughout the weekend, kids are encouraged to get crafty by making an antler craft, and Santa will be there to greet your children.





It’s not just families that will be having fun at the LA Zoo Reindeer Romp, but also the animals. During the weekends, animals will be enjoying sweet holiday treats and Santa will be checking items off their holiday wish list by bringing the animals lots of presents.
