Zoo Atlanta Illuminights

At 5 pm, Zoo Atlanta will close for the day.  And at 5:30 pm, IllumiNights will open up and will go until 9:30 pm.  IllumiNights is a separate ticketed event.  Atlanta’s beloved yuletide spectacle returns with the Chinese lanterns casting a glow upon the wildlife.

Enjoy taking an after dark walk, marveling at the twinkling lights and the colorful lanterns.  The zoo will be transformed into a winter wonderland.  You’ll see more than one hundred intricately designed Chinese lanterns, including ones shaped like leopards and a blazing phoenix.  The lanterns truly are a beautiful sight to behold.  Take some instagram worthy photos of this colorful scene.  

Warm up after your walk a cup of hot cocoa or a festive adult beverage for those 21 and older.   You can also enjoy roasting marshmallows over an open fire.
