The zoo will be decorated with thousands of luminarias illuminating
the walkways of the grounds with candlelight.
During the evening
event there will be a number of activities, including cookie
decorating, ornament making, "noodle art" and more. Santa Claus will
make an appearance as he visits with the zoo's reindeer, Rikka and
Ealu. Hot chocolate and popcorn will also be available.
Discount tickets are available in advance at the Bloomington and
Normal libraries and at the zoo. Zoological Society members also
receive discounted tickets at the door.
