Zoo Lights presented by Florida Power & Light Company, FPL SolarNow is sure to become a Florida holiday tradition for families and friends. While the animals slumber, Palm Beach Zoo will be illuminated for the holidays with over one million eco-friendly lights. Each evening from 6 – 9 pm the Zoo will be aglow with unique themed displays from the entrance through the Florida Wetlands, Tropics of the Americas and NEW this year, Asia. The festive holiday fun features photos with Santa (until Dec. 23rd), special animal encounters and special treats.
Families can experience the best West Palm Beach holiday celebrations. This year, the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society is honored to be the official non-profit community partner of Sandi and the City of West Palm Beach Holidays in Paradise annual downtown campaign. In addition to taking part in Zoo Lights, plan on visiting Sandi and her flamingo friend Hope as Sandi Brings Hope to West Palm Beach. Learn more at wpb.org/events
