Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way into Lincoln Park Zoo for their FREE admission nights this Holiday season!

"This festive, one-of-a-kind holiday experience offers a merry, family-oriented tradition in the heart of the city." - LPZ

Let me state the obvious: Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year.  What makes it so much more special and magical are the Holiday events happening all over Illinois.  That includes ZooLights at Lincoln Park Zoo!


Normally, tickets are just $5 to get into the Zoo, but every Monday now through January 1st, you and your little elves can make your way into Lincoln Park Zoo for absolutely FREE!

Visit the wild residents, walk through beautiful lightshows, and experience a night like never before.  I think this would be a truly magical date night with your boo - I'm definitely gonna find someone to take with me!

Here are the dates that you can hop on your sleigh and get in for free:

November 28, December 5, 12, 19, & 26

If you would love to go on a $5 day, these are the dates you can choose from:

November 22-23, 25-27, 29-30, December 2-4, 6-10, 13, 16-18, 20-23, 27-31, & January 1st.

Clear your schedule this weekend, Lincoln Park Zoo is waiting for you!  There will be so much to see and do, too.
