Free ZooLights!

In what they’re calling a “holiday gift to the city,” FONZ announced today that their annual ZooLights celebration will be free this year. I personally think this is a wonderful gift, as it combines three of the greatest concepts the world has ever known: free things, Christmas and adorable animals.

ZooLights will take place from 6 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from Dec. 3 – 12, and every night from Dec. 17 – Jan. 1 (excluding Dec. 24, 25 and Jan. 1). Each week will highlight a different area of the zoo, and will feature animal demos, keeper talks and nightly visits from Panda Claws. Panda Claws will also be out and about in the city to promote ZooLights; be the first to post a photo of him to the zoo’s Facebook page, and you could win two tickets to ZooFari, the zoo’s annual culinary gala.
