TXU Energy Presents Zoo Lights is now closed for the season.
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 beverage to a full meal, we’ve got a variety of refreshments to choose from. Macaw Cafe will have dinner favorites such as burgers, pizza and chicken tenders, and Cypress Circle menu items include baked macaroni and cheese and Elf Treats, deep-fried Twinkies with fresh whipped cream. You can find a quick snack and drinks at carts and kiosks along the path, including make-your-own smores, Reindeer Treats (churro sundaes!) and craft beer.

Have Your Holiday Party Here

The Zoo is a wonderful setting for parties, especially during TXU Energy Presents Zoo Lights. Find out more about hosting a holiday party at the Houston Zoo.
