If you liked Festival of Lights last year, they promise this year's will be even better. In fact, the holiday display was recently voted as the No. 1 best zoo light show by USA Today. 

Preview night is only open to zoo members and invited media from 5 to 10 p.m. Friday. The event opens to the public on Saturday. The Festival of Lights will be open from 5 to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and from 5 to 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays through Jan. 1, 2017.
