'Tis the season to enjoy the San Francisco Zoo at night under magical holiday lights. Come take a moonlight meander through the Zoo as it sparkles with cheer: Make your way from Entry Village Plaza to the newly renovated Elinor Friend Playground for some magical playtime under the stars. Through December 23, shop at the Holiday Marketplace to find one-of-a-kind gifts for loved ones. Then head over to the tent to sit with Santa Claus and sip hot apple cider and cocoa. Don't forget to pay a visit to his special reindeer Belle, Holly, Peppermint and Velvet. Feel like dancing? On Saturday night's in December, we'll feature Noc'tails Silent Disco ($5). You can also watch live entertainment, play Holiday Midway Games to win prizes, ride the historic Dentzel Carousel, and enjoy the holiday cheer as you stroll through select areas of the Zoo during this wonderful event.
