Find festive features (and creatures!) at Woodland Park Zoo's WildLights

Seattle’s wildest holiday lights festival is BACK with more than 700,000 energy-efficient LED lights, faux snowball fights, up-close animal encounters, hot chocolate, and more! Woodland Park Zoo’s WildLights, presented by Sound Credit Union, runs nightly from 5:30-80:30 p.m., beginning November 23, 2018, and ending January 5, 2019*.

You’ll find sparkling lights that recreate wild animals and wild places in two and three dimensions along the zoo’s pathways and North Meadow. But, that’s not all! You can also experience indoor snowball fights, snowman-building, and story time at the Snowmazium, nightly rides on the carousel, special holiday drinks like mulled wine and spiced hot cider at The Winter Warm-Up, and of course, nocturnal zoo animals that are definitely stirring.
