Bring the family to the Birmingham Zoo after sunset for the Zoolight Safari. While the animals rest for the night, the zoo will be illuminated with twinkling lights. You will be captivated by the festive décor and a nearly 30 ft. tall tree of lights. Dance and sing the night away under the stars with spectacular live entertainment. Make sure to grab your picture with Santa at one of the photo booths. Admission is $10 for non zoo members and zoo members have free admission.
You can also enjoy an incredible Christmas light display from the warmth of your own car. At the Birmingham Race Course, Shadrack’s Christmas Wonderland features over three miles of glowing displays, all synchronized to music you can tune into via your car’s radio. Be sure to look for the all-new SANTA’S MOUNTAIN theme features custom built, giant, all-led displays! The lights are up through January 6,2019. Discounted tickets are available at these Piggly Wiggly stores.
