Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Unless you've got a big budget, your holiday light display won't hold an LED candle to the 2.5 million bulbs that festoon Lincoln Park Zoo during the annual ZooLights event presented by ComEd and Invesco QQQ. While most of the animals will be keeping warm inside, guests are free to wander the park, snap photos of the displays and take part in a variety of activities throughout the holiday season.
In an effort to limit capacity and keep guests safe, there's a $5 admission fee this year. Running through January 3, ZooLights also hosts several themed evenings in the park, including an adults-only night out (complete with mulled wine and hot chocolate) and A Charlie Brown Christmas tribute concert from the Chris White Trio.
