In addition to visiting elephants, penguins and other animals, you can ride the popular lighted train and enjoy dinner from a variety of food carts. Little ones may want to ride the carousel, and Santa will be availalble for photos each night. ZooLights runs from November 24, 2017 to January 7, 2018.
