Natural Awakenings Dallas -Fort Worth Metroplex Edition


Holiday Tradition with a Socially Distant Twist

The Dallas Zoo Lights from 6 to 9:30 p.m. through January 2, 2022, follows a mile-long route decorated with 1 million twinkling lights, elaborate holiday-themed displays, dazzling 3-D lighted sculptures, larger-than-life animal lanterns and more. This year, immersive video projection mapping will transform select areas along the path, and the route ends with a bigger, brighter Reliant Holiday Village.


Due to COVID-19 safety protocols, a timed-entry ticket must be purchased in advance and will not be available at the gate. Guests will enter through the main entrance and be routed to follow the Dallas Zoo Lights driving path. The estimated time to drive through the experience is 30 to 45 minutes.


Cost is $65 per car. Dallas Zoo members receive $15 off, with discounts on food and beverage purchases. For more information, visit
