We parents may not be ready for Christmas but the kids are already thinking about their favorite day of the year. Brighten their day with holiday magic (and a check in with Santa) at the Toledo Zoo for Christmas In July.

Experience a slice of Lights WAY Before Christmas on July 22nd and 23rd at the Toledo Zoo. Stroll through a section of lights on the Zoo’s South Side, while listening to holiday tunes. Play glow in the dark mini golf, make some festive crafts and more! Visit with Santa AND your favorite characters from Frozen and The Grinch too.

In addition to the holiday themed festivities, guests can also enjoy access to the ProMedica Museum of Natural History, Aquarium, Reptile House, carousel and Nancy L. & Martin Davidson Barnyard.

Enjoy a concert under the stars on Sunday and enjoy a stroll through the lights on your way to the Toledo Zoo’s historic Amphitheatre for a 56Daze concert.

Admission is $13 for adults, $11 for children ages 2 to 11. Children under 2 and zoo members are FREE! Get tickets here.
