WildLights returns to Living Desert from November 25 – December 24


WildLights at The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens will return the day after Thanksgiving.

The popular holiday attraction will once again feature over a million lights and light displays – including the tunnel of lights – and will also include a chance to see Santa Claus, wildlife encounters, live entertainment, camel and carousel rides, and a whole lot more.

New this year, WildLights guests will enjoy a luminescent herd of animal lanterns including two adult giraffes, one baby giraffe, two zebras and three cheetahs, with the tallest standing 16 feet.

There will also be a “snowy” Whoville winter wonderland where guests will have a chance to have “snowball” fights and play in the frosty white, artificial snow.

“WildLights is a wonderful holiday tradition and this year we are delighted to be adding even more exciting features for our guests to enjoy,” said Allen Monroe, President & CEO of The Living Desert in a press release. “Not only is it fulfilling to see families enjoying the holiday spirit, but every time someone visits The Living Desert, they help further our mission to save endangered species.”
