Zoo Lights Portland Oregon

Zoo Lights Portland Oregon is an annual event at the Oregon Zoo and is a
wonderful tradition for celebrating the holidays in Portland. "See the
zoo transformed into a winter wonderland, aglow with a million lights. More
than 200 animated animals swing through trees, jump across lawns, hide in
bushes and appear in places where they’re least expected. Displays include
swinging monkeys, leaping frogs, flying bats, diving penguins and a
perfect-for-photos light sculpture featuring a dozen animals."  The
Portland Oregon Zoo Lights event is much anticipated each year, and children will
delight in the sparkling lights, animated displays, and zoo trains.
