The holiday season in Phoenix, AZ is always the time of year everyone gets hyped about, and if you’re visiting you might be surprised at the kind of preparations that go into making it even more festive. Case in point is the annual Phoenix Zoo Lights. A lot of meticulous work and manhours are spent to create the majestic light armatures around the zoo. From animals to Christmas-inspired shapes, when the Phoenix Zoo lights turn on, the entire place turns into a magical place straight out of a fairytale.
From the end of November all the way to mid-January, the Phoenix Zoo enchants its visitors with its evening displays. Millions of lights are strung over trees and walkways. Animals shaped out of light will interact with the children. Jenga, the giant giraffe, will answer their questions and tell them jokes, while Tortuga, the Galapagos tortoise, named after the infamous pirate island, will tell them all about her life and share secrets about all the places she has seen before she came to the zoo. Other animals such as the light beetles and anteaters will also put on a show of their own. Around the lagoon, a combination of music and light displays will entertain visitors all evening.
Not to be outdone, the dinosaurs will have their own show as well. The fearful animals will move around and shout at each other in a sea of dancing light. The 23 dinosaurs are a traveling exhibit that makes a stop at this time of year at the Phoenix Zoo to entertain the guests. Other attractions include 3-D light displays of cupcakes and candy pieces as well as carrots near the cages of the rabbits. And for theater lovers, the 4-D theater is back by popular demand to show “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.”
