Dallas Zoo Lights Drive-Thru Holiday Event is Back To Light Up 2021


Your favorite Dallas holiday tradition is back again for 2021!

Similar to last year’s holiday lights event, the 2021 Dallas Zoo Lights is a drive-thru event that features a million twinkling lights, animal lanterns, 3D lighted sculptures, and lots of other displays. You’ll be able to drive your vehicle with all your loved ones on a mile long path that’s lined with over a million lights, Christmas decor, and themed vignettes. This year, there is even video projection mapping that transforms certain areas on the way. According to the Dallas Zoo’s instagram, “you can walk around and explore at the Reliant Holiday Village at the end of the drive!”. This sounds like one the best Christmas ideas in Dallas for this holiday season!

If you missed last year’s Dallas Zoo Lights, you won’t want to miss this year’s because the path goes through areas that haven’t been open to the public in years. You can’t buy tickets at the gate, so make sure you get yours online to reserve your time slot! Further details are below.
