Point Defiance Zoo- Nov 23th -Jan1st
Open every night except Dec 24th. from 5-9pm. Prices $7 online and $8.25 at the gate.
I have been to Zoolights many times and the kids always love running around the zoo and aquarium and watching all the lights. The zoo also has a light recycling program, where you drop off lights that do not work any longer rather than throwing them in your own trash. The money made from recycling these lights go into the conservation fund and help support the animals at the zoo. This year they have added Santa scuba-ing with sharks and ZIPLINING!
5:30-9pm. $13/vehicle, $28/mini bus, $45/bus
If you have a packed vehicle, then this might be cheaper than Zoolights. This is a drive through venue, rather than a walk through like with Zoolights. The displays are just as good at both venues however. They even have a locally broadcast station (93.7) you can listen to the Christmas music as you see all the different displays. *http://www.facebook.com/PtDefianceZoo for picture and CBS Seattle
