The coronavirus pandemic has shut the National Zoo down for a second time, but that hasn't stopped staff from continuing a popular tradition loved by all age groups.  

Zoo Lights is now becoming the ZooLights Express!

A 24-foot truck has been decked out in lights, decorations, and the whole works and features some Zoo LIghts favorites including 'Panda Claws" 

The truck will hit each ward in DC on Friday and Saturday nights from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. through December 19.  

The zoo has put out the following schedule: 

  • Friday, Nov. 27 | Ward 1
  • Saturday, Nov. 28 | Ward 2
  • Friday, Dec. 4 | Ward 3
  • Saturday, Dec. 5 | Ward 4
  • Friday, Dec. 11| Ward 5
  • Saturday, Dec. 12 | Ward 6
