The days may be getting shorter, and the nights longer, but thanks to the National Zoo, that’s a good thing! ZooLights, the seasonal favorite that lights up the Zoo with colorful lights displays, has returned. The season officially kicks off November 23, when the Zoo will once again be full of larger-than-life representations of some of your favorite animals. And this year, in addition to the models train and snowless sledding, the Zoo will also be unveiling its Conservation Carousel, an old-timey carousel crafted with care that features more of the Zoo’s animal icons.
So bundle up and enjoy the long nights with a cup of apple cider and some new creature friends.
