Experience the magic of the holiday season at Zoo Lights, the annual winter celebration at the San Francisco Zoo and Gardens. From December 16-30, you'll encounter a whimsical festival of twinkling lights, costumed characters, nightly shows, and special events. Ride the Little Puffer Steam Train, mingle with live reindeer, and dance amidst snow flurries. You'll also find a fun array of live entertainment each evening, including choral groups, drummers, comedy acts, jugglers, dance teams, and more.
And don't miss meeting the big man himself – Santa Claus will be available for photo opps in the Pachyderm Building. Getting chilly? Visit the South American Tropical Rainforest and Aviary, a cozy spot to warm up if the evening is too cold. Zoo Lights will be open from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm, and is a special way to experience the holidays in San Francisco.
