There is nothing more festive than getting bundled up and heading outside during the holiday season to view the bright and cheery decorations adorning the trees and structures. It’s even more fun though when you can take in all the sights and sounds of Christmas at one of Chicago’s favorite locations for family fun…the Lincoln Park Zoo!

Zoolights is a Christmas spectacle, featuring stringed lights of every color, luminous displays, and arrangements your family can enjoy on select dates, beginning November 25. Entrance is free, so you can save your money for some extra gifts to tuck under your tree and really soak in the experience. You’ll also discover that the fun doesn’t end with the light displays! Your family can visit with Santa, view live ice sculpting, listen to festive music, participate in educational zoo-themed chats, and make a craft to commemorate your visit. Warm up with hot chocolate or coffee, or for the older visitors, a frosty holiday themed brew!

This event is the perfect way to ring in the holidays. Plan your visit today, and follow along with us on Instagram for more ideas to get you feeling festive this season!
