Lights Before Christmas

During the holiday season, the Zoo is transformed into a winter wonderland. The "Lights Before Christmas" holiday event features over ONE MILLION lights, over 200 images of your favorite animals, ice-carving demonstrations on Thursday evenings, carolers, holiday treats, the Swanton Area Railroad model trains, and visit with Santa in the Indoor Theatre**. Also be sure to check out our 85-foot Norway Spruce located behind the Conservatory. Adorned with over 32,000 lights, this spruce boasts more lights than the famous Christmas tree in New York City’s Rockefeller Center! You can also find unique gifts and souvenirs in the North Star Trading Post gift shop. Don't miss out on this family tradition!

Back by popular demand! The dynamic "Dancing Lights" show, utilizing state-of-the-art LED wide-angle mini lights, synchronized to classic holiday tunes. The show, which will be repeated throughout the evening for visitors’ convenience, is located in a large grove of trees near Cheetah Valley. And don't forget to visit Santa while you're here through December 23.
