From Friday, November 16, 2018, through Sunday, January 6, 2019, the Los Angeles Zoo will become a holiday wonderland, set aglow with LED lights by the thousands, creating a festive atmosphere replete with Santa and a herd of real reindeer.  The Zoo ushers in the holiday spirit with REINDEER ROMP daily (except December 25) and its awe-inspiring nighttime holiday event L.A. ZOO LIGHTS (every evening except November 22 and December 24 and 25), awarded USA Today’s “10 Best Zoo Lights” honors, returning for its fifth spectacular year and promising to be bigger, brighter, and merrier than ever.  The merriment continues with two exclusive HOLIDAY HAPPY HOURS for the 21-and-over crowd in December, as well as a FAMILY NEW YEAR’S EVE for all ages.

One of the few places that Angelenos will be able to see real reindeer this season is at the Zoo’s “Reindeer Village” habitat. In addition to up-close views, guests will get to learn more about the herd from expert reindeer keepers. Visits with Santa Claus in a charming, rustic North Pole outpost (for an additional fee) take place on weekend days at REINDEER ROMP from November 17 through December 23 plus Friday, November 23, 11 am to 3 pm, with a variety of photo packages available.

Los Angeles’ preeminent holiday event, L.A. ZOO LIGHTS, an award-winning, brilliant display of lights and animation, will shine bright nightly for seven dazzling weeks. Guests can stroll the expansive grounds and delight in a disco ball forest, whimsical 3-D animations, a glowing “Northern Lights” featuring animal constellations that come to life, and so much more. For the first time ever, the L.A. Zoo Lights experience will include picturesque Elephant Circle, which will be transformed into a kaleidoscopic savanna where glowing, large-scale animals roam. Its popular Twinkle Tunnel will double in size and feature cascading swirls of light and a spectacular finale. Other favorites like the dynamic holiday tree at the entrance, the animated elephant herd, and the dramatic water show are all reimagined, with stunning new visuals and music. This light spectacular is on display from 6 to 10 pm nightly, with Santa visits available November 16 to 18, November 23 to 25, and November 30 through December 23 (for an additional fee). L.A. Zoo Lights 2018 features a “Preview Week” with $12 discount admission for adults (13+) and children (2-12) from November 16 to 21, with online purchase. (A convenience fee applies for all online purchases.)

Returning this year are “L.A. ZOO LIGHTS VIP EXPERIENCES,” including two exclusive HOLIDAY HAPPY HOURS for the 21-and-over crowd, as well as a FAMILY NEW YEAR’S EVE for all ages. Exclusive HOLIDAY HAPPY HOURS include a German-themed “Bavaria Haus Holiday” happy hour on Thursday, December 6 and tropical-themed “Tiki Tidings” happy hour on Thursday, December 13.  Both evenings feature express entry to L.A. Zoo Lights at 6 pm and access to a private lounge from 6:30 to 8:30 pm with gourmet hors d’oeuvres, beer, wine and a themed signature cocktail, after which guests are welcome to experience L.A.

The Chinese Lantern Festival Will Light up the Night in Pomona Handcrafted Lanterns Create Beautiful Displays of Color and Light Thursday, November 15, 2018 – Sunday, January 6, 2019, plus holidays

This November, the Pomona Fairplex will host The Hanart Culture Chinese Lantern Festival, a fully immersive multicultural experience the entire family will love.  This premier event will be held every Thursday – Sunday for eight weeks, from November 15, 2018 – January 6, 2019, plus holiday. The evening skies become ablaze with the color and light of over 1,000 beautifully handcrafted lanterns at the Glade, Picnic Hill and Lagoon at Fairplex Pomona (1101 W. McKinley Ave., Pomona, CA 91768).

This year’s theme, “The Wild,” features five different locations – America, Oceania, Asia, Antarctica and Africa – and will showcase lanterns representing wild animals from each region including cheetahs, panda bears, jellyfish, majestic cranes, lions, and even dinosaurs.  These impressive lanterns range in size from 12 – 23 feet tall.  This visually stunning display combines art, tradition, and culture, creating opportunities for alluring photographs and wonderful memories.

The Lantern Festival is one of China’s most traditional celebrations with the art of Chinese lantern making dating back to the Han Dynasty (206 B.C. – 220 A.D.).  “These gorgeous lanterns have evolved through the centuries, from when they were used for lighting, to an art form all their own.  Chinese lanterns are a cherished part of festivals and celebrations world-wide and we are proud to bring the Hanart Culture Chinese Lantern Festival to Southern California,” said George Zhao, president of Hanart Culture.

A lantern’s construction is varied according to its purpose, from the finest silk or glass over the best wood used in Palaces, to the red gauze stretched over bamboo in the more traditional red lanterns recognized around the globe.  Shadow-picture lanterns used a paper wheel inside which turned when heated, creating moving pictures around the outside of the lantern.

Today, these lanterns are made of modern materials and technology with brilliantly lit colored LED lightbulbs, musical enhancements and sound effects, and visual moving parts to create larger-than-life imaginative shapes.  Furthermore, four ceramic elephants made of 3,200 kitchen utensils such as dishes, bowls, spoons and wine cups will be on display.

The festival will also feature food, Kung Fu shows and demonstrations, and shadow play.  Guests will also be able to shop the craft marketplace where authentic Chinese jewelry, artifacts, dough figurines, as well as Chinese embroidery art, sugar art, paper-cut and fabric art will be available for purchase.  “In addition to the spectacular lanterns, we are excited to share the beauty of other aspects of Chinese culture including food, arts, crafts, dance and martial arts.   Guests will also be able to enjoy and experience a wide assortment of Chinese culture,” Zhao said.

Tickets can be purchased at the event, or online at www.ChineseLanternFestival.com for $13 – $21.  Gates open from 5:30 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. with the last admission at 9:20 p.m..  Fairplex parking is $12.
