Zoolights at Lincoln Park Zoo

Light up the zoo for the holidays


Imagine strolling through thousands of lights, colors blazing everywhere, shapes, spheres and characters abound. Imagine you can do that right in your own backyard, or rather, in Chicago’s backyard. That’s what you’ll do when you hit ZooLights, the annual light festival at Lincoln Park Zoo.

ZooLights kicked off November 27th and runs Fridays through Sundays until December 13th when the zoo will get lit up every single night until Christmas Eve. The festival takes off December 24th and 25th, but turns back on through January 3rd. So bundle up and get ready to let your eyes twinkle as the lights around you sparkle.
