Oakland Zoo Set to Plug in ZooLights, an Annual Holiday Festival of Lights

Dec 2, 2013

This year’s illuminating event includes a festive light show designed by Impact Lighting with music powered by 99.7 Now. On Friday, November 29 beginning at 5:30pm, 99.7 Now’s DJ Strawberry will be onsite to celebrate the Grand Opening of ZooLights at Oakland Zoo.

 

Dozens of colorfully lit animal-themed structures will be situated throughout the Zoo for families to enjoy during the evening hours. Santa’s sleigh is also set to arrive from the North Pole, please check Oakland Zoo’s web calendar for specific dates. Plus, new this year, elves have designed a special storybook maze for children to enjoy in the Wayne and Gladys Valley Children’s Zoo! Experiencing ZooLights via the starlit pathways will lead participants to jingle and mingle through the candy cane lane themed rides area and aboard the Outback Express Adventure train, for a jolly train ride in the dark.

 

Ease the chill of the evening with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate and don’t forget to dine on the new holiday faire, ZooLights -“Go Bites,” a selection of walk-around snacks for the whole family to enjoy. Besides being sweet, ZooLights is a family oriented evening, filled with traditional activities, designed to help one make merry memories of the winter season.
