This year zoo lights features several unique displays, such as a Texas area presented by TransCanada, a 1958 Cadiallac called “Holly Berry,” a Holiday Train Village presented by Macy’s, the Enchanted Forest, and an interactive, talking Zebra named Candy, which is presented by HEB.
Zoo Lights allows patrons to experience a different side to the zoo. Since it takes place at night, many of the animals are at rest.
Much of the focus is on the lights themselves, but some of the animals join in the celebration as well.
You may get the treat of seeing how some critters behave in the dark.
