Say Goodbye to Tai Shan While You Still Can!

Giant Panda

The 3rd annual ZooLights display at The National Zoo is now open again after taking a few day hiatus due to the recent snowpocalypse.

This is your warning to get your goodbye’s in while you still can! Everyone’s favorite panda, Tai Shan, will be bidding DC adieu in early 2010. You know you’ll be kicking yourself in rear-end if you miss out on this chance to catch a glimpse of cuteness before he leaves us for China.

So go early and go often!

Tickets are available at the gate ($5 for members and $8 for non-members). ZooLights are open between the hours of  6-8:30 p.m.   Visit for more information.
