The Gladys Porter Zoo invites Rio Grande Valley residents and visitors to its annual holiday celebration, on December 5th, 6th and 7th from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tickets are now on sale for $2.50 or donate a new unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots. Zoo members get in free with their membership cards. Tickets are available now for pre-sale or can be purchased at the gate on each night of the event.

Zoo Nights & Lights offers holiday spirit for all families and a romantic setting for a date night. It is an event designed to allow for a break from the stress of the Holiday Season.

There is a lot to do in the Mitte Cultural District, so after you visit the Zoo make plans to walk over to the Dean Porter Park to see the free Holiday Village display. These quaint cottages, dressed up for the holidays, are truly a unique sight.
