Event Description

During December, the Oakland Zoo morphs into a magical wonderland filled with lights, sights, and sounds of the holiday season. Hundreds of thousands of LED lights brighten Oakland's night sky.

Highlights include a candy cane lane themed rides area, a night time adventure on the Outback Express train, rocking around the Christmas trees in the Children's Zoo, and a light show that's sure to blow out any bah hum bugs. When it's cold outside, you can warm up while watching the creepy crawlies in the Bug House. And, do snakes like holly? The Zoo elves are decking the halls of the Reptile Room with mistletoe and all things jolly.

This family friendly event is filled with familiar festive music by KBLX, a meadow light show orchestrated by Impact Lighting, and an atmosphere that will bring you and yours holiday cheer. It's an Oakland tradition you do not want to miss. Visit oaklandzoo.org for more information. Please call (510) 632-9525 for up-to-date information.

ZooLights is closed on 12/24 & 12/25.

The KOFY Crew will be onsite December 20th playing fun games and giving away cool prizes as we celebrate the holiday cheer!
