Dozens of towering, interactive, glowing lanterns await to entertain and enlighten you at every turn on a mile-long stroll!

Glowfari - A Wildly Illuminating Lantern Festival

Glowfari is an unforgettable experience for all ages to enjoy! Featuring hundreds of larger-than-life glowing animal lanterns throughout the Zoo; and with all-new animals displays for 2021!

Take a mile-long illuminated stroll through the Zoo and visit the desert with camels and bighorn sheep, have an African safari adventure with elephants, giraffes, and an 8-foot crocodile head, walk through the rainforest to meet red and giant pandas – and of course ride the gondola to the land of bugs featuring a 65-foot Queen Ant Tunnel!

Finish the evening with a visit to Santa and ride the Express Train through our Winter Wonderland!
