The dazzling Bronx Zoo Holiday Lights are back for the first time since 2007. Visitors will be able to walk-through the zoo to experience wildlife-themed LED displays, custom Asian lanterns, animated light shows on the historic Astor Court and more. There are large-scale lighted sculptures of gorillas, lions, elephants, giraffes, zebras, reindeer, sea animals, and more.
