Thank you everyone for another magical Zoo Lights! See you next year!


Will Zoo Creatures Be Stirring?

The star attraction at TXU Energy Presents Zoo Lights is well…the lights! Our animals will be enjoying a full night’s slumber. To see our animals, visit the Houston Zoo again during the day. You will encounter many animal-themed light displays, with glowing LED versions of your favorite Zoo animals.

Dining and Drinks

From a refreshing drink to a full meal, we’ve got a variety of refreshments to choose from along your Zoo Lights path. The new Cypress Circle Cafe features locally sourced, sustainable ingredients and includes delicious brick oven pizza! The BBQ Food Truck will serve up delicious smoked meats and roasted corn.  You can even find quick snacks at carts and kiosks including make your own s’mores, hot chocolate and craft beer.
