If you’re in the Lincoln Park area make sure to stop by the Lincoln Park Zoo, and celebrate the holidays with all the animals at ZooLights.
The zoo is transformed into a winter wonderland with two million lights, ice carvings, musical light shows, animal encounters, ice skating, holiday crafts, and more as part of ZooLights. Along with the animals, kids can visit with Santa Claus, enjoy the AT&T Endangered Species Carousel, Lionel Train Adventure, and more. In addition, the ice skating rink will return where you can give your best ice skating performance to the the ponies and goats surrounding you at the Farm-in-the-Zoo.
Louis Glunz Beer, Inc. will return to host BrewLights, a special night of beer sampling. Guests can enjoy sample pours of a dozen different breweries with different beer styles to try throughout the zoo.
New this year will be Adults Night Out where the zoo will be open only to those 18 years old and up. Not only will you have access to exclusive animal chats, but you can also enjoy some delicious beer, food, and wine for purchase while gazing at the dazzling lights.
