TAMPA — It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas as Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo transforms again into a world of festive holiday wonder for Christmas in the Wild. For 18 nights, experience a merry and memorable evening with this unique holiday event. Only at the Zoo, can families be nose—to-horn with an Indian Rhino and then stroll hand-in-hand with Santa’s Elves. From the stunning sights of countless lights, the taste and scents of seasonal holiday treats and refreshments, the magic and enchantment of wildlife at night, Christmas in the Wild will offer guests of all ages a truly charming holiday experience.

More merriment awaits with dazzling entertainment, including carolers dressed in Dickens era costumes performing traditional classics as well as contemporary favorites, and holiday story time with Mrs. Claus. All-new this year, guests will be captivated by a 50-foot animated Christmas tree complete with 12,000 dancing lights, 2,000 ornaments, and an 8-foot star.
