ZOO Lights Safari Kicks Off This Weekend

Celebrate the holiday season and create a new family tradition admiring the sparkling lights and brilliant hues at the Amarillo Zoos ZOO Lights Safari.  They've decked the halls, trees, bushes and everything but the animals with holiday lights to bring you the brightest wildlights display ever! For six fabulous nights, the Zoo will share the spirit and sounds of the season. Stroll the zoo grounds sipping some hot chocolate while listening or joining in with guest caroling groups.

Can't make it to the North Pole? Do the next best thing and visit Santa and Mrs. Claus when they make a special stop at the Zoo each night during the event. The Zoo elves will be busy helping our young visitors make a special bird treat for our feathered friends. Parents may shop the special zootique gift area to pick up a special animal related plush toy, book, jewelry or toy for that special someone.

Zoo Lights Safari is a sure way to beat those holiday bah hum bugs!
