This year’s event will feature several displays and interactive activities to inspire Calgarians to take alternative modes of transport and highlights conservation efforts at the Wechiau Hippo Sanctuary in West Africa.

With a skating rink, a 16-foot Christmas tree, and a visit from Santa, ZOOLIGHTS is the perfect place to get the whole family in the holiday.
