The holidays are getting bigger and brighter as the Dallas Zoo debuts its inaugural holiday celebration, Dallas Zoo Lights Presented by Reliant. After the animals go in for the evening, the Zoo will transform into a winter wonderland with nearly one million twinkling lights. Spanning 33 nights from Nov. 17 through Jan. 2, guests can stroll a path that covers 25 acres within the Zoo, enjoying an array of light-wrapped trees, overhead and hanging light displays, lighted 2-D decorations, and 3-D light sculptures. Savor tasty treats including gourmet donuts, cookies, s'mores and spiked hot chocolate for adult guests. Choirs will provide entertainment, and there will be activities for children. This event is free with Zoo admission and to Dallas Zoo members, so plan to arrive during the day to walk around and see the animals until 4 p.m., then stay for the holiday celebration from 5-9 p.m. Open every Friday through Sunday, and select weeknights, and closed on Dec. 24 and 25.
