One of Calgary’s most festive events will be back this holiday season.

Zoolights, presented by Olympia Trust Company, is returning to the Calgary Zoo for its 24th year.

The zoo will be transformed into a magical wonderland with 2 million twinkling lights from November 20, 2020 to January 3, 2021 (excluding December 25), for seven weeks of family-friendly fun that gives back to animal conservation.

Head to the zoo to ice skate, make crafts, take a photo with Santa, and drink hot chocolate by the fire — all while following COVID-safe protocols.

Online Timed Tickets will be on sale later this month on the zoo website.

You can stay tuned to the Calgary Zoo’s social channels for more announcements about the event!

Until then, ZooBoo is taking place at the Calgary Zoo until November 1.

Plan a visit if you’re interested in dressing up and trick-or-treating at the zoo, while enjoying seeing your favourite animals! Tickets can be found here.
