From the Oakland Zoo -
Looking for something festive to do this month? Check out the Zoolights at the nearby Oakland Zoo.
Throughout the zoo, located at 977 Golf Links Road in Oakland, hundreds of thousands of LED holiday lights are shining from 5:30 to 9 p.m.
ZooLights will be open seven days a week, depending on weather conditions. Please call (510) 632-9525 for up-to-date information. ZooLights will be closed on December 24 and 25.
ZooLights is an evening fundraiser for the zoo's animals and requires additional admission. Zoolights admission for zoo members is $5 per child and $7 per adult. Non member tickets are $6 per child and $8 per adult.
Santa Claus will also be at the zoo this month.
Highlights include a candy cane lane themed rides area, a night time adventure on the Outback Express train, rocking around the Christmas trees in the Children's Zoo, and a light show that's sure to blow out any bah hum bugs.
Please note: Oakland Zoo animal residents will be in their night houses and not visible to the public.
