Wonder of Lights at the L.A. Zoo

An annual tradition for holiday-loving Angelenos, L.A. Zoo Lights is proud to invite the Los Angeles community to explore a wild wonderland of light, under the stars at the beautiful L.A. Zoo located in world-famous Griffith Park. Zoo Lights guests can enjoy seasonal treats and visits with Santa for an exciting and festive family-friendly experience every night throughout the entire holiday season.

LA Zoo at the Holidays

Beginning Friday, November 15, guests may enjoy new features for the 2019/20 season, including the world’s largest illuminated pop-up storybook, more light animals than ever before, beautiful hand-crafted Chinese silk lanterns, and a high-tech interactive display where dancing lights respond to guests’ voices.

Every evening from Nov 15 – Jan 5, Zoo grounds will transform into a holiday wonderland with a disco ball forest, whimsical 3-D animations, a water-laser show and much more. Guests will be greeted at the Zoo entrance with a stunning 90-foot-long shimmering wall of lights featuring wintery snowflake displays set to music. Zoo Lights’ popular Twinkle Tunnel has been expanded, upgraded and is now more Instagramable than ever. These enhancements will create an immersive “Tunnel of Lights” vibe within the massive 225 foot-long structure.
