"Zoo Lights" @ Point Defiance Zoo - 2nd Annual

  • This location is shown only to members

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 lets plan to arrive shortly after they open, and if we are hungry after, find a bite on the way back.  Don't forget to help your driver with gas and bridge costs.

Zoolight Admission
Purchase at the gate $8.50 ea   OR

Purchase online or from  Fred Meyer for $7.25 ea.
