ZOOLIGHTS CANCELLATION FOR DECEMBER 8; TO RESUME DECEMBER 9

Keep warm on a winter's night at ZOOLIGHTS- cozy up to one of the many fire pits.

The week of December 5, 2016 has been a chilly week in Calgary! With temperatures reaching under -30°C with wind chill, our favourite city on the prairies has been feeling the cold. ZOOLIGHTS had to be cancelled on December 6 and 7, but the end is in sight!

Due to the extreme cold weather, the Calgary Zoo has decided to cancel ZOOLIGHTS again this evening, December 8, however Calgary’s favourite holiday tradition will return on Friday, December 9, 2016. The Special Events Team has adapted the event to the colder temperatures, moving some of the activities indoors.

No ZOOLIGHTS visit is complete without a visit to Santa! Young or old, this photo op is a classic.

“We know that Canadians and Calgarians are a hearty bunch,” says Roz Freeman, Special Events and Promotions Advisor, Calgary Zoo. “We know how to dress for the weather and a little bit of cold weather does not damper our ability to have fun. There will be plenty of hot chocolate, warm fires and places for guests to take a break from the cold.”
