It’s a slice of Lights WAY Before Christmas… (Not the whole electrical spectacle though.) Get in the spirit early by strolling through a section of lights on the Zoo’s South Side, visiting with Santa and his reindeer, playing glow in the dark mini golf, devouring holiday-themed concessions, making ornaments, meeting the Snow Queen and Princess Ana and more! The ProMedica Museum of Natural History, Aquarium and Reptile House will also be open for visitors. Bring the whole family from 8 – 11 p.m. with last gate admission at 10 p.m. Zoo members receive free admission for those covered under the membership and cost for non-members is $10 for adults, $8 for children 2-11 and seniors 60 and older. Children under 2 are free.
