We visited ZooLights at our Oregon Zoo for the first time. What a gorgeous display they put on! With this busy season of ours, celebrating the holidays, and celebrating the birthdays of Lily AND Katie with parties, friends and family, it was so nice to have an evening slowly strolling under and around the Zoo Lights.
Happen to be in my sweet city of Portland? Do yourself a favor and visit ZooLights. You can enjoy this experience until January 5th, with the lights coming aglow at 5:00 and blazing until 8:00 (8:30 on Friday and Saturday.) Prices: Youth $7.00 Adult $10.00. Ages 2 & under are free. Purchase your tickets at the gate, or purchase on-line and either print them out at home, or have them sent by mail carrier.
There's plenty of hot cocoa to keep you warm while you stroll the light filled paths at ZooLights. Visit the bats in their habitat, they're pretty entertaining munching on broccoli and bananas. (My girls were trying to figure out how to put little Santa hats on them. I'm pretty sure that won't happen.) I did love the tunnel of light, but I don't have a favorite display. It was all so pretty! What a beautiful night!
Come see The Oregon Zoo in a whole new light!
