San Diego Zoo’s Jungle Bells presented by California Coast Credit Union!

Familiar holiday traditions take on a wild twist at the San Diego Zoo’s seasonal celebration, Jungle Bells presented by California Coast Credit Union. The holiday extravaganza starts Dec. 10, and runs through Jan. 2, 2017. Jungle Bells guests will be treated to seasonal decorations, animal experiences, costumed characters and live entertainment. The Zoo will be aglow with holiday cheer and activities to keep the whole family jolly. Guests can hop on the Twinkle Light Trolley for a special tour of the Zoo’s festive décor, watch as unique enrichment treats are given to some of the animals, and sample delicious holiday foods offered at many

of the Zoo’s restaurants and food stands. Don’t miss out on holiday shopping at the Zoo’s retail locations, or Holiday Happy Hour at Albert’s Restaurant, with discounted drinks and appetizers available from 3 to 5 p.m. each day of Jungle Bells.

The festivities continue into the night, as guests will be treated to the amazing Celebration of Lights and Carol of the Jungle Bells light experiences. Dr. Zoolittle will put his own spin on the classic “‘Twas The Night Before Christmas,” and, of course, the holiday magic would not be
