Zoo Lights Are Coming Back to the National Zoo!

Zoo Lights Are Coming Back to the National Zoo! 

It's that time of the year again, when the National Zoo lights up its animals for the enjoyment of children of all ages in the Washington, DC area.  

There are birds, tigers and pandas.  There are elephants, octipi and even a cow.

The entire zoo is lit up, and so are a lot of people enjoying the lifelike light sculptures.

The lights turn on every night from 5 to 9 pm, starting November 29th, and admission is free.  The zoo will be closed December 24th, 25th and 31st.   

If you live in Cleveland or Woodley Park, of course you can walk over to the zoo to check out the animals.  If you don't want to drive, you can always take Metro to the National Zoo stop on Connecticut Avenue NW.
