Denver Zoo Lights – Runs every night from November 30 to January 6 from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.

Come and experience a holiday light safari with more than 60 brilliantly-illuminated acres of lights. Enjoy nightly entertainment, animal encounters, and Santa meet-and-greets.  There are also illuminated animal sculptures that swing through trees, jump across lawns, hide in bushes and appear in places where they’re least expected.

Zoo Lights is one of Denver’s most anticipated events, which is a great opportunity for folks of all ages to enjoy the holidays or kick off the New Year with family, friends and colleagues.
