Every big city has a signature holiday light display. But Houston has been sorely lacking in this department--until this year.

In November the Houston Zoo will debut Zoo Lights, a family-oriented attraction that will transform the campus into a holiday wonderland complete with more than 300,000 LED lights, 15 miles of tree lighting and seasonal songs and stories. TXU Energy is the presenting sponsor for the event, which will run from Nov. 23 - Jan. 5.

Sip hot chocolate as you stroll through the Zoo and take in all the sights, including thousands of twinkling lights adorning the magnificent live oak trees, whimsical colorful projections over 15 feet tall, and life-size animated animal sculptures.

You'll also want to check out "Holly Berry," the 1958 Cadillac that's more than just your average vehicle. "Holly Berry" features vibrant lights that dance in time to joyful music.

During Zoo Lights, the Zoo will close at 5pm, with the last ticket sold at 4pm. The Zoo will reopen for Zoo Lights at 6pm, with the last ticket sold at 9pm, and the event ending at 10pm.

Tickets for Zoo Lights are $8 for members and $10 for non-members. Purchase tickets online and receive a $1 discount. Visit the Houston Zoo online at houstonzoo.org/zoolights for more information.
