Last year’s L.A. Zoo Lights was such a success that the Los Angeles attraction has returned, bigger and brighter than before. Starting Nov. 27, the Los Angeles Zoo grounds (5333 Zoo Dr., L.A.; www.lazoo.org) will be lit from 6-10 p.m. Mon.-Thurs., 6-11 p.m. Fri.-Sun. (except Dec. 24 and 25) with hundreds of thousands of LED lights that bring the L.A. icon to life in a wonderfully different way. While the real animals sleep, you can see snowboarding iguanas, a glowing 150-foot snake, amusing monkeys dangling in trees and elephants in gaudy ski sweaters. The visually stunning light display also features sparkling light tunnels, glittering snowflakes and impressive 3-D animated projections.

But the light show isn’t the only special attraction at this zoo this holiday season. Daylight hours (10 a.m.-5 p.m.) will bring the Reindeer Romp, the only opportunity for folks to see real reindeer in Los Angeles, Nov. 27-Jan. 3 (except Dec. 25). Zoo guests can also enjoy a variety of family-friendly holiday festivities, including the occasional visit from Santa Claus himself. All of the special activities, except for Santa photo ops, come free with paid admission, $13 adults, $11 ages 2-12 Mon.-Thurs.; $16 adults, $14 age 2-12 children Fri.-Sun.
