29 Oct Holiday Lights at the Bronx Zoo
Nothing can keep New York down when it comes to being the holiday capital of the world – and this year is no different. The Bronx Zoo’s Holiday Lights, a family-favorite holiday light experience, will be back starting November 20, bringing New Yorkers much-needed joy for the winter season.
Holiday Lights will be on select dates from November 20 to January 10 with a WCS member preview November 17-19. Tickets for Holiday Lights must be purchased in advance and are now available online. A 30-percent early bird discount is available for all ticket purchases made before October 4, 2020.
This year’s experience will encompass a larger area of the zoo and be organized to accommodate social distancing and eliminate bottleneck areas. The zoo will have almost 50 more animal lanterns than last year and will create five geographically representative lantern safaris that include species from different regions of the world.
Entertainment will include holiday-themed music, ice carving demonstrations, costumed characters, stilt walkers, souvenirs, and seasonal treats like hot chocolate and s’mores. As s’mores have been so popular, we are going from 4 to 12 s’more fire pits.
