Time Out says

The Bronx Zoo’s sparkling seasonal outdoor celebration featuring animated lights and LED displays of animals from around the world is back this year.

Expect the zoo to dazzle with 360 wildlife lanterns representing 90 species spread across an expansive area of the zoo. Six lantern trails will depict scenes from geographic regions and ecosystems: North America, Latin America, Africa, Asia, oceans and the Forest of Color with larger-than-life representations of some of the lesser known but impressively colorful animals and plants vital to the Earth’s ecosystems. This year's display features 70 new lanterns and 30 new species.

Plus, don't miss nightly ice carving demonstrations, the holiday train and costumed stilt walkers. Warm up with sweet treats including churros, s'mores and hot cocoa. 

Holiday Lights will run at the Bronx Zoo on select dates November 18 through January 8.
