Zoo Lights: Animals Aglow on Wednesday, Jan. 4 from 6 to 10 p.m. The Zoo welcomes all LGBTQIA+ friends, families, and allies to celebrate the new year at the Zoo’s totally reimagined, wildlife-centric LED lights display showcasing over 30 of the Zoo’s most beloved animals including giraffes, elephants, orangutans, lemurs, koalas, and condors, along with other charismatic inhabitants.  

“We are so excited for this partnership with Christopher Street West and L.A. Pride,” said Denise Verret, CEO & Zoo Director, Los Angeles Zoo. “The L.A. Zoo is committed to creating a place for all the beautifully diverse communities of Los Angeles to feel welcomed and experience belonging while connecting with nature and biodiversity. I am thrilled to have members of our LGBTQIA+ community and their allies enjoy this special holiday tradition and establish lasting experiences and memories for years to come.”

Zoo Lights takes guests through desert, garden, and jungle landscapes filled with larger-than-life glowing sculptures, magical lights, and immersive exhibits in a dazzling display of light and color. There are several animated and interactive displays and photo opportunities for family and friends to enjoy. They include a guest-activated kaleidoscope of lights; glowing ring swings; a wisteria tunnel that leads to a light fountain; a cherry blossom-lined path; and a giant alligator, peacock, and bird wings for a unique photo opportunity; and so much more.
