Zoo Lights is returning to Stone Zoo just in time for the holiday season!
If you missed Franklin Park Zoo’s beautiful lantern show, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Well… Stone Zoo’s got you covered, with its Zoo Lights show coming back on November 27!
Giant glowing penguins, stunning neon wings, twinkling Christmas lights…These are but a few wondrous things you’ll find at Stone Zoo’s dazzling Winter Wonderland. This year Stone Zoo’s annual Zoo Lights show is returning with dozens of gobsmackingly beautiful lanterns that are sure to brighten up anyone’s day (and let’s face, we’re all in need of a bit of twinkling, blinding lights to cheer us up at the moment)
Spanning the whole 26 acres of the zoo, you’ll be able to walk down a beautifully lit, one-way path through Yukon Creek and see black bears, a bald eagle, Canada lynx, arctic foxes, and even reindeer!
Even though Santa may not be coming back — he seems to be caught up in the North Pole according to the zoo — you’ll still be able to enjoy the twinkling Christmas lights and lanterns — The IG photo ops will certainly keep all of us entertained!
Of course, the zoo is implementing strict social-distancing rules to ensure everyone’s safety–humans, animals and lanterns alike! Aside from following state guidelines, Stone Zoo asks all visitors to wear a face mask, respect the 6-foot social distance and to arrive at the venue no more than 5 minutes to the assigned time on their tickets.
Zoo Lights at Stone Zoo is set to open on November 27 until January 3 and will open daily from 4 to 9:30 p.m.* with the exception of December 25 when it’ll remain closed. Make sure to snag your ticket on their website before they run out. It’s simply an unmissable experience!
*Note: Closing time may change with the new stay-at-home advisory recently announced by Mass officials and which is going into effect on Friday, November 6.
