Dallas Zoo Lights 2021 Is A Drive-Thru Experience

Drive and shine! Dallas Zoo Lights Presented by Reliant returns as a walk-thru experience after 2 years as a drive-thru due to Covid-19.. Enjoy all the holiday lights you know and love, and a beautiful evening in the zoo.

The Zoo has created themed vignettes along the walk-thru path, showcasing silk-covered animal lanterns on a safari of lights, Santa’s candy cane lane, and a trio of penguins on an Antarctic adventure! Between vignettes, guests will be surrounded by light-wrapped trees, overhead and hanging lighted decor, and 2D and 3D animal and holiday displays.

Our family loves the Dallas Zoo and Zoo Lights was really fun! Both of my older children volunteered at the zoo when they were younger, so it’s really a special place to us!
