The Audubon Zoo is a fascinating place to visit at any time of the year, but around the holidays it becomes even more spectacular, especially at night.
is a showcase presented by Children’s Hospital. From November 23 to December 30 (5:30-9:30 on select nights) the zoo is transformed into a lit-up, festive winter dreamland.
The event features enormous
silk-lighted replicas of some of the Zoo’s most popular animals, a holiday lights walking tour, nightly entertainment, holiday storytime, delectable festive treats, craft tents to create special well wishes for the patients of Children’s Hospital, Polar Pics with Santa, and a holiday artisan marketplace.
Some of the
slated to hit the stage during Zoo Lights’ run are: 610 Stompers & Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, New Aurora Saxophone Ensemble, Make Music Nola, Project 42 Performing Arts, Animal Ace, Mia Kyle & Ace Hebert, and Crescent City Sound Chorus... among many others.
