The Potawatomi Zoo will be hosting a new holiday lights experience, the Gift of Lights, on weekends from November 23 through December 23.

The Gift of Lights experience will be open Fridays through Sundays from 5 - 9 p.m.

Tickets will be available at the entrance each day. Admission is $9 for adults, $7 for children 3-14 and seniors 62 and over, and free for children 2 and under.

“The Zoo has had holiday lights and decorations in the past, but this year we wanted to do something really special,” says Marcy Dean, executive director of the Potawatomi Zoo. “We’re so excited to bring a beautiful holiday lights celebration to the Zoo that we hope becomes a new winter tradition for families.”

On Fridays and Saturdays as weather permits, the South Bend Civic Theatre will have performances or carolers by the Christmas tree near the North American river otter habitat.

Some animal exhibits will be closed after dark and in cold weather.
