Denver Zoo says
PLEASE NOTE: Zoo Lights goes until January 1. This is not indicated on the event due to the limitations from Facebook on length of event.

Zoo Lights will span through 60 acres of Denver Zoo's campus, with nightly entertainment, animal encounters, Santa meet-and-greets and, of course, illuminated animal sculptures that swing through trees, jump across lawns hide in bushes and appear in places where they’re least expected. Running December 2 until January 1, 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. Zoo Lights is presented by Your Hometown Toyota Stores.

During this time (December 16 through January 1) we will have a shuttle running nightly from 5 to 10 p.m. between the Zoo and the 40th and Colorado Light Rail Station. Zoo Lights is supported by premier sponsors Bank of America, Ace Hardware and 7News.

Don't miss the sculptures of Washed Ashore, presented by CH2M, all beautifully lit up for nighttime viewing!
