Festive lights transform Fresno Chaffee Zoo into a winter wonderland during Zoo Lights, a holiday celebration with sparkling displays and live music performances. Patrons can stroll the illuminated grounds and drink in the breathtaking exhibits while gargling “The Little Drummer Boy” with free hot cocoa. Each evening, local groups take the stage and showcase homegrown talents. After munching a cookie, visitors can create a holiday craft or snap their own photos with Santa. For $2 each, guests can don a pair of Holospex glasses, which sport holographic lenses that create a kaleidoscopic pattern around every bright light and tiger-striped candy cane.
Regular zoo admission is not included. Admission is free for children younger than 2. Adult tickets are required for visitors aged 12 and older.
The zoo is well planned out. It's in the middle of an expansive park, similar to LA's zoo in Griffith park, and has several nice areas for sitting.Mckenzie S., Yelp, 7/5/11
