Calgary is experiencing some wintry temperatures – so what does that mean for your ZOOLIGHTS visit? We’ve got you covered, so get your glow on at ZOOLIGHTS and make memories, despite the chill. Here are our tips for a cold weather trip.
Get your glow on at ZOOLIGHTS presented by JSS Barristers– Calgary’s brightest holiday tradition! We’re back for our 20th year from November 24, 2017- January 6, 2018, and there’s no shortage of activities to keep visitors busy. Make sure to visit all four of our activity areas to ensure you don’t miss a thing.
After a mild fall, winter has truly arrived in time for the holiday season. Crisp snow has covered the Calgary Zoo grounds, reflecting the shine of 1.5 million LED lights, as the annual evening event ZOOLIGHTS is in full swing. Zoo visitors bring friends and family out to experience Calgary’s favorite holiday tradition.
The wonderful world of Dr. Seuss has come alive in the ENMAX Conservatory thanks to the efforts of our Horticulture team. The display has incorporated the zoo’s commitment to sustainability, and the team has been recycling and re-using products to create the amazing Zooville setting. Horticulturalist Corinne Hannah took the lead on an incredible project that took months to prepare.
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!
There’s so much to do at the Calgary Zoo during the holidays! On November 25, when we flick on the switch to ZOOLIGHTS presented by JSS Barristers, the grounds will be transformed into a twinkling wonderland for the entire family – until January 8, 2017.
Winter at the Calgary Zoo can be some kind of awesome. On November 25, when we flick on the switch to ZOOLIGHTS presented by JSS Barristers, the grounds will be transformed into a twinkling wonderland for the entire family – until January 8, 2017. When ZOOLIGHTS began some 19 years ago it was dubbed Wild Lights but, back then, it was far from the conservation-focused $1-million event it’s become.
If you’re a Calgarian, then you know that there is one major seasonal event that the zoo hosts every winter. That’s right, it’s almost time for ZOOLIGHTS!
Calgary’s favourite holiday tradition is back (running from November 25, 2016- January 8, 2017), and with it comes 1.5 million LED lights, activities, and memories to be made.
With all of those twinkling lights, what is it like getting ready for this big event? We caught up with Aaron Cunningham and Kelsey Van Raay, two employees with the ZOOLIGHTS know-how.
