Jungle Bells Will Be Ringing This Holiday Season at San Diego Zoo

| December 3, 2022 | 0 Comments

San Diego Zoo guests are invited to celebrate the season with the return of Jungle Bells Proudly Supported by California Coast Credit Union. The annual holiday event will treat guests to a joyous wonderland of twinkling lights, live entertainment, festive music and views of awe-inspiring wildlife.  Jungle Bells is scheduled for Friday, December 9 through Sunday, January 1, 2023, with the exception of Dec. 24 (when no Jungle Bells activities are scheduled). The San Diego Zoo, located at 2920 Zoo Drive, is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. during this event; and the Zoo closes at 5 p.m. on December 24.

Join in Reindeer Games and trek through Northern Frontier’s Holiday Forest, or visit Santa or his friendly helpers, Zoo characters Dr. Harry Lion, Churchill Polar Bear, Sydney Koala and all their friends. Enjoy an abundance of culinary delights at the Zoo’s many restaurants and food stands, or shop for one-of-a-kind gifts for everyone on your holiday list at the Zoo’s numerous retail locations. When you give a gift from San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance, you are directly supporting wildlife conservation around the world.

Guests won’t want to miss the magic of Aurora, an immersive presentation weaving 3D projection mapping, music and lights into a spectacular performance. Ethereal sprites representing wind, water and ice share their story, and the power of nature contained in their mystical orbs. It’s an experience unlike any other!

Jungle Bells activities are free with Zoo admission or membership. Parking is free. For more information, visit sandiegozoo.org/junglebells.
