BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — The Baton Rouge Zoo will be celebrating the holidays with ZooLights, an event featuring 50 illuminated display sculptures of animals.

The event runs from Nov. 26 to Dec. 30, with closures on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Attendees are encouraged to bring nonperishable food items for The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank in exchange for a 50% discount on admission prices. Event organizers hope to reach a goal of 8,000 pounds of nonperishables.

“Zoolights is a remarkable holiday tradition bringing joy to the Baton Rouge community. Joining with The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank to provide food donations and replenish their provisions during the season of giving, makes perfect sense,” said Phil Frost, Zoo Director. “The Zoo is about families and we encourage our guests to give back and get back this holiday season through this ideal partnership.”
