Visitors to this year’s Lights Before Christmas have a shining opportunity: a Festive Feast holiday
buffet served in the zoo’s historic Lodge, which has been lavishly transformed into a holiday lodge.
The Festive Feast is available on most Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, 6 to 8:30 p.m. Dec. 1-17.
Each Festive Feast includes family-friendly crafts, an encounter with a zoo animal, a photo with Santa,
and Lights Before Christmas admission after 5 p.m. Selected evenings also feature Laurel’s Princess
Parties or a visit with Ellie the Elf and Mrs. Claus.
The menu features a top round carving station, baked penne marinara, glazed baby carrots, mashed
potatoes, salad and assorted breads, holiday cookies and pirouette chocolate cake. Children’s menu
options are available by advance request. Assorted beverages are provided (including the zoo’s famous
hot chocolate), and holiday spirits are available to adults for an extra charge.
Advance reservations and payment are required for the Festive Feast; walk-ins are allowed only if space
is available. The cost is $35 for adults and $25 for children ages 2 to 11.
