I have very fond memories of the Griffith Park lights that used to don Crystal Springs Drive along the golf course. We would go nightly. I’d pack hot chocolate, meet a bunch of friends and push my little ones along the bridle path to just…enjoy.
Then, they went away for quite a long time and we were so incredibly sad. And in 2014…they came back, but this time inside the zoo.
Oh, joyous day!
Having a place to go look at Christmas lights with my family is simply one of our favorite holiday traditions. And this coming weekend, the LA Zoo lights will be up an ready to go for your family through the holidays.
L.A.’s wildest holiday light experience returns on November 15, with exciting updates for the 2019/2020 season.
- The world’s largest illuminated pop-up storybook in Entry Plaza and beautiful hand-crafted Chinese lanterns throughout
- More glowing light animals than ever before—including tigers, lions, macaws, monkeys, meerkats, and flamingos “decorating” the Zoo just for you
- Interactive elements like a voice-activated “sound trail” with dynamic swirls of dancing lights
- A reimagined Twinkle Tunnel featuring three progressive light experiences, for even more Instagrammable moments
All your favorite attractions—the Animated Elephants, Luminous LAIR, “Splashes of Light” Water and Laser Show, Disco Ball Forest, and more—are back, along with scrumptious holiday goodies every night and full bars on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
