Zoo Lights Illuminates the Season

BREC’s Baton Rouge Zoo is illuminating the holiday season with Zoo Lights this year! Proudly presented by Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Health, Zoo Lights is open from November 24 to December 30 and closed Christmas Eve & Christmas Day.

Admission gates open from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., and grounds close at 9:00 p.m.

Adults/Teens: $5
Seniors: $4
Children (2-12): $3
Children (1 and under): Free
Zoo Members: $3 per person?

We are partnering with The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank again this year! Every guest presenting a non-perishable food item during the hours of Zoo Lights will receive a 50% discount from the regular admission price. All food donations will go directly to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank. In 2020, just over 7,000 pounds of food were collected during this drive.

On Fridays and Saturdays before Christmas, Zoo Lights will feature visits from Santa Claus at the Otter Cabin!

Come to the zoo to enjoy a trail of thousands of dazzling lights around the zoo for a cherished family holiday tradition in Baton Rouge
