The Chattanooga Zoo will once again host its annual 12 Days of Christmas Campaign. Fans of the Zoo will be given the opportunity to purchase gifts for their favorite animals this Holiday season.
The Chattanooga Zoo will feature different animals daily on its Facebook page and what that animal would like for Christmas on Dec. 1 through 12. Guests are welcome to bring their gifts to the Zoo Gift Shop anytime during the month of December during normal operating hours and will receive a small gift in return from the Chattanooga Zoo.
Guests are invited to watch the animals open their gifts during the Zoo’s annual Holiday Lights event. The Chattanooga Zoo will be transformed into a magical winter wonderland on Dec. 5, 6, 12, 13, 18, 19, and 20 from 5:30-8 p.m.
"See the entire Zoo lit up with festive lights, sip on hot cocoa, create a variety of holiday crafts, enjoy story time, visit with the animals and watch them open their gifts, get your picture made with Santa Claus, and more. Come enjoy a fun, affordable holiday evening with the family while making memories that will last a lifetime." officials said.
All activities, except photos with Santa Claus ($5), are included in regular Holiday Lights admission. Admission is $8.95 for adults and $5.95 for children (ages 3 – 12), children 2 and under are free.
“It is always such a treat to celebrate the holidays with our animal friends. To see the Zoo decorated beautifully for the holidays and watching guests get just as excited as our animals as they open their gifts truly makes the holiday season memorable," say Darde Long, Zoo CEO and president.
