Celebrate the holiday season with family and friends at Chicagoland’s largest and longest-running lights festival. Brookfield Zoo’s 36th annual Holiday Magic, presented by ComEd and Meijer, invites guests to sing to the animals and enjoy professional ice-carving demonstrations, magic shows, a 41-foot talking tree, and special visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus (the latter through December 17). The zoo will be lit with more than one million twinkling LED lights and select animal habitats will remain open, as will zoo restaurants and gift shops. A full schedule of music and live entertainment, costumed characters, a model railroad display, and more will add to the magical ambiance.
