Holiday lights are coming back to Griffith Park, but unlike any you’ve seen before.
Produced in collaboration with theatrical set designer Gregg Lacy and the lighting experts of Bionic League – renowned for designing stage shows for Kanye West and Daft Punk – L.A. Zoo Lights is inspired by our animals, gardens, and the City itself. For 36 nights, portions of the Zoo will be transformed into a dazzling winter wonderland full of wit, whimsy, and a considerable amount of technical wizardry, with 3D projection mapping, laser technology, and interactive displays.
Amidst all the advanced technology will be a nostalgic nod to the past, with select displays from the DWP Festival of Lights, which ended a 14-year run in Griffith Park in 2009, integrated into a narrative that will transport guests from beautiful holiday scenes to a glittering, fantastical “Hollywood” populated by animal “luminaries.”
One of the driving forces behind L.A. Zoo Lights has been District 4 City Councilman Tom LaBonge, who wanted to provide Angelenos with a holiday experience in the park to replace the beloved DWP event. The result isn’t just another light display. It is stunning light-driven entertainment that will amaze and delight the entire family.
And it’s the start of an all-new holiday tradition.
Detailed information regarding the event will be made available on November 1.
