December 5, 2015 - December 31, 2015
Feel the magic of the season at Brookfield Zoo's Holiday Magic, presented by ComEd and Meijer. During the festival guests can see more than one million twinkling LED lights, ice-carving demonstrations, light shows, and special visits from Santa and Mrs. Claus (through December 20). A full schedule of nightly music and live entertainment, a magic show, costumed characters, a model railroad display, singing to the animals, and more will get everyone into the holiday spirit. Select animal exhibits will be open, as will zoo restaurants and gift shops (in which guests can find gifts for those hard-to-shop-for loved ones).
