Holiday Lights Return To Griffith Park After 5-Year Hiatus
It's been five years since we've seen the annual holiday lights tradition at Griffith Park and now a similar show is coming to the park, but at a new location—the L.A. Zoo.
LADWP used to line Crystal Springs Drive at Griffith Park with large and festive light installations, but stopped after 2009 when they started construction on a water line, according to KABC.
"L.A. Zoo Lights," which will run nightly at the zoo from Nov. 28 to Jan. 4, will be featuring some of LAWDP's familiar light displays, but with a lot more. The L.A. Zoo says that their space will be transformed into a "winter wonderland" with "animal escapades rendered in led lights, lasers, 3D projections, spectacular sets and interactive displays."
"We have the nostalgia of the DWP lights and we've layered on this element of Hollywood and contemporary entertainment, and it should be really exciting for people," Kate Hilliard of the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association told KABC.
Following the old traditions at Griffith Park, the L.A. Zoo will be selling hot chocolate and other treats you can enjoy while you walk through their LED light tunnels or down their Hollywood-esque red carpet with paparazzi "animals" (which we're taking a safe guess assuming that they're not real-life animals).
The show, which costs $13 for adults, will be a 60 to 90-minute self-guided tour through select areas at the zoo. If you purchase early-bird tickets online, they cost $8 for adults. It runs nightly from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. More info here.
