With the year we’ve had, it’s no wonder so many of us are looking forward to the holidays to lift our spirits. There’s just something about the lights, the music, and the excitement on kid’s faces that bring cheer to even the most Scrooge worthy year. So we are super excited that the family-favorite holiday tradition of Holiday Lights will once again be returning to the Bronx Zoo! On select dates from November 20th through January 10th, Holiday Lights will be back and with even more fun than last year. We’ve got you covered on what to expect as well as a special discount code for Bronxmama readers.
New for this Year:
- 5 New illuminated animal lantern safaris that includes species from all over the world: Africa, Asia, Latin America, North America, and the Ocean. This includes 75 new animal lanterns!
- Takes place over 12 acres- giving you more to see and more space to socially distance outdoors
- The addition of #Smoretolove- an opportunity for everyone to share their favorite s’mores recipes. The three most creative and delicious entries will be selected by a culinary team to be sold at Holiday Lights. In addition, winners will receive four tickets to Holiday Lights. Visit bronxzoo.com/SMORES to submit your recipe. And make sure to taste the ‘Elvis Duran & The Morning Show S’more’ when you visit, featuring graham crackers, nutella, marshallow and peanut butter.
- Colored light displays, costumed characters, stilt walkers, ice carving demonstrations, and seasonal treats (s’mores, hot chocolate) return

Keeping You Safe
The Bronx Zoo will continue their safety practices since they have reopened- with sanitizing stations and reduced capacity so that guests can have a safe and enjoyable experience. Tickets still must be reserved in advance here.
P.S They also have some really cute animal masks available to purchase in the gift shop if you’re looking for cute stocking stuffer ideas.
