Not only will you get to see the magnificent wildlife up close, but you can also enjoy delicious food from local food stalls, live music you can shake a hoof to, as well as take cute Instagram-worthy pics with Santa Claus.

A ticket to the November 22 and 23 event includes a souvenir cup, as well as 10 drink tastings across the zoo. BrewLights features over 40 Northwest vendors from whom you can sample delicious cider, beer and seltzer, all the while walking through a magnificent display of dazzling lights, incredible 3D sculptures, as well as beautifully lit trees.
