A Spectacular Celebration of the Season
Lincoln Park Zoo’s 21st annual holiday festival—featuring more than 2 million lights in imaginative displays across the zoo—shone more brightly than ever this season. More than 530,000 guests streamed through the gates over 31 days, setting a new attendance record for the after-hours event.
ZooLights Presented By ComEd and PowerShares QQQ included three special ZooLights nights—BrewLights Presented By Louis Glunz Beer, Adults Night Out and Members-Only Night at ZooLights—plus three ZooLights Family Nights with free rides and free kids’ meals. The festivities included visits with Santa, musical light shows, free holiday crafts, warm spiced wine and frosty lagers, rides on the AT&T Endangered Species Carousel and Lionel Train Adventure and Ice Skating at Lincoln Park Zoo Presented By PowerShares QQQ.
To top it all off, 14 couples got engaged at ZooLights, taking advantage of a new engagement proposal package that included an illuminated “Will You Marry Me?” sign and other romantic options.
Thanks to our generous sponsors and to all who celebrated the season with us!
