Holiday Lights at the Oregon Zoo

When it comes to the holidays, it’s all about those sparkling Christmas lights. Nothing brightens up a festive winter season than beautiful displays for all to enjoy. If you haven’t had your fill of holiday illumination, then make your way over to the Oregon Zoo. You won’t be disappointed. Be sure to bring your family and friends along for the ride. There’s fun to be had for all!


Zoo Lights

Open now through January 7, 2018, the Oregon Zoo is having their annual winter festival! There are over a million lights spread across the zoo grounds, which means that there will be a lot to see. You can even hop aboard their lit-up train and make your way around the park in style! Plus, you’ll want to stop by and say hello to the animals as well.


When you’re finished exploring the park, be sure to grab pictures with Santa Claus himself. You’ll want to be sure and hop on the carousel with your little ones, too! Zoo Lights is open from 5 to 9 pm throughout the season. We can’t think of a better way to spend some time with your favorite people and your favorite zoo animals!

What: Family Harvest Festival

Every year, Fir Point Farms hosts their annual festival. Peruse the pumpkin patch for that perfect pumpkin. Take a trip on a hayride around the farm or enjoy nature on their Nature Trail Path.
