November 29–December 1; December 6–8, 13–23; December 26–January 4, 2013–14

Thousands of visitors once again basked in the brilliance of this annual free, family-oriented holiday celebration, featuring luminous displays and holiday-season activities throughout zoo grounds. The after-hours festivities included new routes with even more lights, photos with Santa inside the Kovler Lion House, live ice carving, free holiday crafts, and carousel and train rides—not to mention Ice Skating at Lincoln Park Zoo located at the Farm-in-the-Zoo.

Members enjoyed VIP treatment at the Members Lounge in the Tadpole Room on the lower level at Park Place Café plus exclusive access to all the holiday fun during the first-ever Members-Only Night at ZooLights on December 5. Guests generously donated new and gently used winter clothing to Chicago charities as part of the ZooLights coat drive and also received special illuminated gifts Friday nights from ComEd.

Thanks to sponsors ComEd and Charter One and everybody who came out to share the spirit of the season!
