I traveled to opens in a new windowNorth Pole, Alaska, this summer and saw Santa Claus and reindeer when I could have just waited for December to roll around at opens in a new windowLowry Park Zoo in Tampa. If visions of sugar plums aren’t dancing in your head, be a good girl or boy and visit the zoo during the holiday celebration called opens in a new window“Wild Wonderland” to put you in the holiday spirit.

Santa will be there along with reindeer, millions of twinkling lights, foam snow flurries (brrr!), holiday displays (some animated), games, rides, and holiday treats at the zoo’s “Sweet Shoppe.”

Check your calendar and check it twice, Lowry Park Zoo’s “Wild Wonderland” is on display only for a few select nights:

December 3, 9 through 11, 16 through 23 and 26 through 30, between 6:30 and 10 p.m.

Visiting Lowry Park Zoo
What makes Lowry Park different from other zoos I’ve visited is it didn’t feel like a zoo. Areas are themed, like those big amusement parks, and seem to flow into one another. There are a handful of family-friendly rides and affordable activities, like feeding a giraffe.
