Join us for a Family Day of fun activities planned to help pass the time while school is out from the earthquake! Activities will be held from 11am to 3pm, regular admission and membership use apply.

The zoo closes from 4-5pm, then we have regularly scheduled Zoo Lights from 5-8pm. Zoo Lights must be paid for separately. Admissions fees from Family Day do not carry over for Zoo Lights.

Get ready to be dazzled by our Zoo Lights displays! See our schedule below for Zoo Lights times and rates (admission to the zoo is included in the rates). Purchase entry for Zoo Lights rates at admissions between 5-8pm.

Our Coffee Shop and Gift Shop will be open for business on Zoo Lights evenings and the Discovery Center is a great warm up spot. We hope you will bring your family, friends and loved ones!
