Zoo Lights at Lincoln Park Zoo

Lincoln Park Zoo Lights Festival

Hey, you Lincoln Parkers! Take a quick stroll and join in the annual fun, free, family-oriented holiday celebration at Lincoln Park Zoo. The famous spectacle features luminous displays and holiday-season activities spread throughout the zoo grounds.

Zoo Lights, presented by ComEd and Charter One, will shine each Friday-Sunday from 5-9 PM until December 26th. Afterward, the lights will stay on nightly until January 6th. But hey! Santa heads back to the North Pole after December 23, so if you want to see him, you’d better start now.  zoolights3
