Wild Lights | Saturday, November 16 - Tuesday, December 31

Celebrate the holiday season with the return of Wild Lights to Elmwood Park Zoo! They’re flipping the switch on millions of lights that will shine throughout the zoo’s entire 16 acres. Take a stroll through Snowflake Central and be dazzled by Rainbow Runway. Catch out the 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.

Each night of Wild Lights will feature live entertainment, including unique animal encounters, performances, character appearances, holiday music, and more.

Join Santa on a magical adventure into Christmas past on one of the most beautiful train journeys in the United States. Sip complimentary hot cocoa or enjoy Christmas cookies and, on some trains, sing favorite carols as the Secret Valley passes by your window. Santa brings a gift for every child, and every child has an opportunity to give their Christmas letter to him (we even provide the crayons!) The Victorian charm of our heated coaches makes Christmas memories to last a lifetime.
