Update: Palm Beach Zoo Extends Crowd-Pleasing Zoo Lights to Jan. 4

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. December 26, 2019 – Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society has extended  Zoo Lights, presented by Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) through January 4.  The event draws thousands of visitors and features more than one million eco-friendly LED lights, illuminating the Fountain Plaza and east side of the Zoo. Each night of the event, the Zoo opens after regular hours from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. for a wild holiday celebration, decadent treats, music and holiday charm. 

“We are so pleased with the overwhelmingly positive reviews and high demand for Zoo Lights that we will continue to light up the night through the new year and beyond.” said Margo McKnight, president and CEO of Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society. “We want everyone to have the opportunity to share this magical event and new holiday tradition with family and friends.”
