Oregon ZooLights Open Through New Year

The holidays aren’t over until ZooLights is over! Guests still have a few more evenings to brighten the winter season: ZooLights, presented by U.S. Bank, runs through Thursday, Jan. 5, at the Oregon Zoo.

All the traditional favorites are back: forests of lighted trees, dazzling life-size animal silhouettes and the light-bedecked zoo train. And new to ZooLights this year: a spectacular display on the central lawn celebrating the Oregon Coast and its unique wildlife, including otters, seals, sea lions, urchins, sea stars, crabs and more.

Once again, there are two ways to illuminate the season: the traditional walk-through ZooLights, plus three midweek evenings that have been set aside for a drive-through experience, Jan. 3–5.

ZooLights is a special event and is not included with regular daytime admission; zoo members receive a 20% discount. All guests, including members, must reserve tickets in advance via the zoo website. For tickets and additional info, visit oregonzoo.org/zoolights.

To prepare grounds for the drive-through experience, the zoo will be closed during regular daytime hours on Tuesday through Thursday beginning Jan. 3. This temporary daytime schedule will continue through Feb. 16, allowing the zoo to conduct maintenance work during some of its lightest attended days of the year.
