About the Event at the Turtle Back Zoo
The Holiday Lights Spectacular at the Zoo kicks off November 18th, 2016. From there, it runs Friday through Sunday until December 11th. After that, the lights are offered nightly through January 3, 2017.
The lights turn on at 5:00 pm and guests are welcome until 9:00 pm.
Admission to the lights is free.
You and your loved ones can stroll through the park and experience the sparkling lights featuring 50 animals and characters.
While you are there, the zoo offers their donations for toys, non-perishable food items, and gently used winter coats. You can drop them off at their donation centers throughout the park to give back to the community.
Each week the park features a different themed activity. So, you could return weekly and have an entirely different experience each time.
