L.A.’s brightest holiday tradition shines more brilliantly than ever! Stroll through an expanded area of the Zoo that is transformed into a fantastical wonderland populated by glowing light animals and a trove of dazzling additions over last year, such as a decked-out L.A.I.R. and a dramatic display combining light, water and music.

POW-LAZooLIGHTSWith awe-inspiring features providing a brand-new spin on holiday lights in Griffith Park, L.A. ZOO LIGHTS sets the Zoo’s enchanting environment aglow with breathtaking displays unlike anything seen in L.A. before, among them thousands upon thousands of LED lights, flurries of illuminated snowflakes, stunning 3-D animated projections, a musical light-and-water show and glittering light tunnels. A fanciful menagerie of animal characters brought to “life” include mischievous animated monkeys scampering through the grounds, a gigantic glowing snake coiled on a roof, a hillside with snowboarding iguanas, 3-D animated elephants wearing colorful holiday sweaters, an origami-type rhino lit from within and so much more.
