Illuminate your holidays

At ZooLights, more than a million LED lights transform the Oregon Zoo into a luminous winter wonderland filled with moving sculptures, forests of lighted trees and animal silhouettes. The popular ZooLights train returns this year, taking visitors on a ride through a sparkling new light experience.

The first 250 guests who show their Regence Member Card at the Cascade Grill, beginning at 5:30 p.m., will receive a plush giraffe and entrance to the Signature Partner Warming Reception. Any remaining giraffes will be donated to the Great Northwest Toy Drive.

ZooLights runs from November 28, 2014 to January 4, 2015.
