Elmwood Park Zoo
Celebrate the holiday season with the return of Wild Lights to Elmwood Park Zoo! We’re flipping the switch on millions of lights that will shine throughout the zoo.
You’re in for a treat this holiday season as Wild Lights transforms Elmwood Park Zoo into a bright and stunning winter wonderland! Millions of lights will illuminate all of our 16 acres. You’ll be dazzled by animated installations, interactive elements, and themed attractions. Follow the lighted path to visit Disco Ball Way and Candy Cane Lane, and be sure to stop by Santa’s Workshop for photos with the big man himself. And don’t forget, Santa’s live reindeer will be returning to the zoo for photo ops as well!
Take a stroll through Snowflake Central and be dazzled by Rainbow Runway. Catch our giant video show in the giraffe yard, and marvel at the custom decorations in the Wonder Way Christmas Tree exhibit. And of course, be sure to visit Santa’s Workshop for photos with the big man himself.

LITTLE RED ROBIN HOOD: A MUSICAL PANTO
November 22 - January 5
Fairytales collide in our brand new holiday panto — Robin Hood is dead, his merry men are in hiding, and Nottinghamshire is taken over by a greedy villainess. (Gasp!) Can a new hero, or heroine, emerge from Sherwood Forest and save the day? Set in the 1940s with a dash of the medieval, this hilarious, musical mashup is our most inventive panto yet.
