Lights Before Christmas

‘Lights Before Christmas’ puts holiday shine on Applegate

Steer the sleigh to Applegate Zoo Friday, Dec. 11 and Saturday, Dec. 12 for the “Lights Before Christmas” extravaganza.

It runs from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. both days. The decorations will remain up through the month.

There’s never been an opportunity like this to see the Zoo decked out in its best Christmas garb and decorations.

Kids of all ages can make decorations in Santa’s Workshop, pet some of the “reindeer” and visit with Santa.

The cost is $3, with kids 5 and under $1.

It’s sponsored by the Merced Parks and Recreation Department and the Merced Zoological Society.

The Zoo is located at 1045 W. 25th (25th and R streets).

There are still a few spots in the Zoo waiting to be filled with decorations. If you or your group, business or organization would like to sponsor a space, please call 209-385-6298.

'Twas the 'Lights Before Christmas';
And at the Applegate Zoo,
All the creatures were stirring,
Even both our Emus.
The Stockings were hung
By our bobcat with care
In hopes that Saint Nicholas
Soon would be there.'
