Zoolights at Point Defiance Park

See the Zoo transformed into a colorful winter wonderland with more than a half-million lights.
The holiday spirit comes aglow in this magical world of dazzling 3-D animal light displays.

Twinkling lights, treats, animals & more

Animal light displays for 2017 include hammerhead sharks and sea turtles, carnivorous plants and
their insect prey, a whimsical 30-foot-wide underwater landscape, a majestic polar bear family, and
a gorgeous giant Pacific octopus.

Have your photo taken with reindeer, ride a camel, enjoy tasty treats, and take a spin on the carousel.
You can even wrap up your holiday shopping with our unique gift ideas. There's always something new
to see and do at Zoolights!
