Where: San Diego Zoo, 2920 Zoo Drive, San Diego
Cost: not available
Age limit: Not available
Ongoing: Friday, December 2 until Monday, January 2, 2017
A chance to see exotic animals at night makes an evening visit worth a trip, and through January 2 the zoo is also decked out with holiday lights and special performances. Expect music, animal-themed Christmas tales, and Santa holding court in an igloo while his elves bounce on a trampoline. Tying the wacky vibe together is the large, tropical toog tree in the zoo’s Front Plaza, outfitted with a musical light display featuring over 1000 bulbs.
It’s free with paid admission, and the zoo stays open until 8 p.m. during the holidays (no Jungle Bell festivities on December 24).
