This holiday season Zoo Miami (12400 SW 152nd Street) is hosting a myriad of exciting activities for the whole family. The zoo’s glorious grounds come to light for 8 brilliant nights during Zoo Lights, December 16-23 from 7 to 10 pm. (ticket booths close at 9:30 pm). Guests can enjoy dozens of bright animal-shaped lights along walkways, listen to wonderful holiday music, sip hot chocolate, munch on delicious cookies, and take a ride on a camel, the wildlife carrousel or the hippo slide (the world’s largest inflatable slide). Included with admission is a pair of 3D glasses, which will make the Zoo Lights experience even more engaging and amusing. General admission is only $5 per person plus tax. Food, beverages, camel rides, carrousel and hippo slide are all available at additional costs.

The Holiday Gifts for the Animals program takes place every weekend in December, including Christmas Day, during which visitors can watch the animals joyfully open presents prepared by zookeepers and volunteers. The animals enjoy opening up their enriching gifts and you’ll be entertained watching them. To save time, buy your tickets online at www.zoomiami.org.
