|Zoo lights is so pretty! This is the first thing you see when you walk into the zoo! The wheels on the train spin and the people inside move!|
|Hogle Zoo Zoolights had lights, music and zoo animals. We took the whole family Monday night for a really, really fun time! I highly recommend it!|
|My son from Chicago came with his family. We saw tigers, seals and sea lions, turtles, bats and lots of other animals. Many were down for the night but they left a LOT of animals out for us to view.|

|"Santa, I want that drumset. My mom and dad aren't so sure about it. But Santa, I've been really GOOD this year!!"|
|You can see the cute Santa mailbox in the background. The table with paper for writing and crayons was just to the left before you get into line to see Santa. Only there wasn't a line! How great is that?|

|Cousins enjoying some time on Santa's lap. I forgot to take pictures of the reindeer outside of Santa's hut. They were neat to see.|
|Other areas inside the Santa hut where pictures could be taken, for family groups. Here's my son hanging out, waiting for all the kids to finish writing their Santa letters. The elves handed out crayons and color books too.|

|My son from Chicago was visiting for a week so we planned some fun night time activities. Zoolights was one of them.|
|It was fun to have the whole family together for a fun family night.|
|We saw Lions, Tigers and Bears...mostly sleeping ones, but these guys were still awake!|
|My son-in-law had the day off so we were all there for Zoolights at Hogle Zoo. It is from 5:30 to 8:00 most Mondays, but they were nice enough to leave it open till 9:00 the Monday we were there. Thursday, Friday and Saturdays Zoolights is open till 9:00.|
|We got a few pictures of almost all the family. But it is a big group!|
|My grandkids were all there at Hogle Zoo's Zoolights. It was a fun time for all of them.|
The zoo keeps some of the animals outside for Zoolights. We saw all the cats and tigers, etc. and they left the inside animals houses open. We saw bats and turtles and monkeys too. It was freaky seeing the bats all hanging around together. My son Devin turned on his phone light and held it up right near the lump of 25 bats and they all turned and looked at his light with their freaky red eyes. I think he scared them, because one of them shot a stream of pee right at the window where his face was. If they hadn't been inside the glass, he would have been drenched. It was no accident. They did NOT like his light! But boy, was it funny! We were all cracking up!

Marisa in the monkey house. There was one set of 4 monkeys sleeping and all 4 tails were curled together. It was so darling! I should have taken a shot of it!
|Here we are in the tunnel. It was just starting the aqua blue light wave. Those columns of lights start up in a wave and when it gets to the end of the tunnel, it changes colors and whirls and spins colors. It is AWESOME!|
Zoolights has a beautiful tunnel of lights that moves colors with the Christmas songs on the speakers. It was fun to walk along inside and look up at the wave of colors changing as the music played pretty Christmas songs. It was a delightful experience!
|I think my favorite animals we saw were the cute monkeys, the snow leopard and the sleeping bears and tigers.|
They had food booths with snacks like popcorn and hot chocolate and hot dogs and stuff. Lots of kids were in wagons and they had lots of strollers and things to rent for just a few bucks.
