This year's holiday season may be a little different, but Brookfield Zoo's annual Holiday Magic, presented by ComEd and Meijer, is sure to get families in a festive spirit. Celebrating its 39th year, this year's event will be held on 24 nights. Check out everything that’s happening this year at Holiday Magic:
See the dazzling light displays including a 600-foot-long tunnel featuring thousands of colored lights all synchronized to music; a giant 20-foot-lit orb ideal for Instagram selfies or holiday photos; a 41-foot-tall holiday tree; larger-than-life LED animal sculptures of a bison, a bear, and a giraffe; and 660 LED-lit trees decorated with ornaments.
Play the Game of Gnomes, a brand new family-friendly scavenger hunt in search of 24 whimsical and enchanting themed gnomes located throughout the park.
Although Santa Claus won't be making an appearance at Brookfield Zoo this year, families can still take photos next to a life-size cutout of Santa, as well as at other festively themed selfie frames located around the zoo. Kids will also be able to drop off their letters to Santa in the giant red box located on the south mall.
Enjoy festive food and beverage favorites, plus outdoor merchandise kiosks with unique items for guests’ shopping pleasure.
