Holiday Parties

Get into the holiday spirit, and mix, mingle and be merry alongside some wild party guests at Stone Zoo's ZooLights!

Enter a winter wonderland of tree-lined paths lit by thousands of twinkling lights at Stone Zoo's ZooLights. Enjoy a stroll through festively decorated Yukon Creek, home to black bears, bald eagle, Canada lynx, reindeer and arctic foxes.
