ZooLights premiere Friday at San Francisco Zoo

San Francisco Zoo & Gardens’ annual holiday light display is launching on Friday, complete with a Winter Wonderland and a Reindeer Village.

The Reindeer Village is located near the playground, and features live reindeer and snow flurries.

Winter Wonderland is installed near the Lion Fountain, and will have local vendors serving food and drink, as well as live music.

Santa’s Workshop is in the Lion House, and kids can have their photo taken with Santa Claus for free until Dec. 23.

In addition to the holiday festivities, the first 1,000 kids will receive a free pair of  PLAE Shoes (while sizes and supplies last). For every pair distributed, one will be donated to a child in need.

The seasonal celebration will kick off with a Christmas tree lighting at 5:00 p.m. on Friday in the entry to the zoo. The lights and special exhibits will run from Dec. 16 to Dec 30.
