Zoolights at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium Opens Friday

Bundle up with hot chocolate in hand and explore the 30-foot-wide underwater display of hammerhead sharks, sea turtles, and a giant Pacific octopus during Zoolights at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium. This year’s figurines will be lit with more than 650,000 energy-efficient LED lights.

While you’re there, visit Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium’s animal exhibits, grab a snack, or ride one of the camels.

If you’re worried about the ticket lines, buy your passes online for quick entrance, or visit around 7:30 to 8 p.m. when the crowds begin to dwindle. Carpool if you can because parking is limited, and save your Zoolights ticket for a special coupon for winter discounts.

The display is open 5 to 9 p.m., Nov. 24 through Jan. 1, excluding Christmas Eve, Christmas, and New Year’s Day. For more details and admission pricing, check out the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium website.
