More than 1.6 million brightly colored lights transform the Oregon Zoo into a walk-through winter wonderland during ZooLights, the annual holiday light display now running through New Year’s Day, Jan. 1.

ZooLights, the Oregon Zoo’s popular walk-through winter wonderland of more than 1.6 million colored lights, presented by the Oregon College Savings Plan and Banfield Pet Hospital, is bigger than ever this year.

A continuous loop now draws visitors on a glowing, kaleidoscopic walk through the zoo. A carousel has been added, and the train ride, a popular add-on attraction, once again features an interactive experience with some favorite seasonal characters.

Over the past five years, nearly a million visitors have strolled through the ZooLights forests of lighted trees, dazzling life-size illuminated animal silhouettes and ridden the light-bedecked zoo trains.

The zoo offers a $5 admission discount for visitors who take TriMet to the event and offer proof of ridership. To purchase event tickets or for more information, visit, oregonzoo.org/zoolights.
