PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — It wouldn’t feel like the holidays in Portland without ZooLights!
Starting Wednesday night, visitors at the Oregon Zoo can enjoy the zoo in a whole new light — literally. The annual winter festival features more than a million and a half lights, including life-size illuminated animal silhouettes.
Over the past five years, more than a million people have strolled through the Oregon Zoo to enjoy the festivities.
“Attendance has been off the charts the past several years,” Ivan Ratcliff, the zoo’s guest services manager, said.

ZooLights runs from Wednesday until Jan. 5, 2019. It’ll be closed Nov. 22 and Dec. 24-25 for the holidays as well as Nov. 27-28 for BrewLights.
