Zoo Lights is the Alaska Zoo’s annual festival of custom light displays which brightens the dark winter nights. We also have opportunities for companies and schools to book Private Night Zoo Lights.
We thank GCI and ConocoPhillips Alaska for their generous sponsorship of Zoo Lights for the community during Alaska’s long, dark winter nights. Thank you!
