Lights Before Christmas

Each evening from 5 to 9 p.m. experience Columbia’s longest running holiday tradition at Riverbanks Zoo and Garden. Explore the Zoo illuminated by nearly one million twinkling lights and more than 350 handcrafted images. Take your photo with Santa, roast marshmallows at the Jingle Bell Bonfire and be sure to wear your hat – it snows nightly at Riverbanks during the Lights Before Christmas. Admission is free for Riverbanks members and general admission is $9 for children ages 2 – 12 and $11 for adults. Avoid long holiday lines and purchase your tickets in advance at www.riverbanks.org. Please note, Lights will be closed Christmas Eve and Christmas, but the Zoo is open on Christmas Eve.
