Zoo Lights

Escaped birds from the Aviary. . . luckily they stay in one place.
With over two million lights, the Houston Zoo is aglow and filled with Holiday cheer. From November 20, 2015 - January 9, 2016, you can take a stroll through the zoo at night while enjoying a spectacular light display. You are only able to see a few of the animals along the walk (we saw the Flamingos and the Giraffes in the Barn), so if your aim is to meet Jonathan the Lion, come back during the daytime. Treats such as Hot Chocolate and Kettle Corn can be purchased. Make sure to arrive early for parking and dress warm!

A Big Thank You to Eduardo Portillo for the beautiful photos of the Zoo!
