"Zoo Lights" @ Point Defiance Zoo

Come get into the spirit of Christmas. Lets bundle up (dress for the weather) and stroll the Zoo as it comes aglow with more than a half-million lights. Sip hot cocoa while you explore seas of dazzling lights and breathtaking displays of ice-skating puffins, a preying eagle, tiger cubs, the Narrows Bridges and the massive flame tree. Warm up with the sharks in the steamy South Pacific Aquarium, experience a ride on a camel, take a turn on an antique carousel and so much more! The lights come are on from 5-9 pm, so plans are to arrive about the opening.
