Some resident “animals” at Zoo Miami get a holiday sprucing up during the attraction’s annual Zoo Lights event, which is offered on select nights from November 25 through December 30, 2022.
Families and children of all ages are invited to immerse themselves in the 3D experience that includes animal-shaped light displays, with more than 1 million bright and dazzling lights!

There will be holiday music throughout the park, at 12400 SW 152nd St., plus animal encounters, appearances by Santa Claus, and a brand-new, 26-foot-tall LED holiday tree. You can also enjoy hot chocolate, cookies and the Snowman’s Riverboat ride – though additional fees may apply.
The daily event hours are 6:30 p.m. – 10 p.m.
Entry is $20.95 for adults and $18.95 for children. There’s also a Zoo Lights Miami package that includes admission, hot chocolate, and two cookies. Click here to make your purchase.
