It's almost Halloween but we've already got the holiday season on our minds. We're already scoping out some of the best places to see sparkling Christmas light displays. This year, the Phoenix Zoo will "Glow Wild" with millions of dazzling lights next month. 

From November 27, 2019, to January 19, 2020, you and your friends or family can visit the event. Parts of the zoo will be aglow with millions of lights and a new Wildlife Lantern Safari display. The lantern display will feature more than 60 creatures aglow with wildly festive lights. 

While you're strolling through the park, you can indulge in some yummy foods and drinks that'll get you into the holiday spirit. Since the display occurs at night, viewing animals will be limited. But it's possible you might be able to spot zebras, flamingo, komodo dragons, and a few more.

Ticket prices vary depending on whether you visit on a peak or value night. Tickets on peak nights will cost $19.95 per person or $14.95 per person on value nights. Value and peak nights vary each month but you can find the exact schedule here

During your safari, you'll be able to see some real reindeers. Since the displays are in certain areas of the park, you won't be able to walk around the entire zoo.

Narcity has reached out to the Phoenix Zoo regarding the ethics of the park and will update this article once we receive a response. 

Zoolights will be available every night from 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. If you're looking for an affordable way to see some gorgeous light displays, the Phoenix Zoo is the perfect spot.

The gift shop will be open during the light display and will have lots of cute little gifts. You can pick yourself up a souvenir or present for your loved ones.
