The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore announced that they won’t be holding its ZooLights event this year.
The Zoo said it will be replacing it instead with a series of events called Holly-Days Weekends in hopes that the new events will help highlight the animals more.

Spokesperson Mike Evitts said in a statement:
“ZooLights was a good fit for us during the pandemic. As the pandemic went away we added more in-person elements to ZooLights but, because it happened after dark, visitors weren’t able to see the animals we care for. We planned Holly-Days to help visitors have fun and get to enjoy the animals here that are out during the winter. We unveiled a new holiday promotion to replace ZooLights, called Holly-Days. It takes place over four weekends starting right after Thanksgiving. Each weekend has a different theme with lots of fun things for kids and adults.”
The Holly-Days events will launch on Nov. 24. Additionally, the themed weekends will involve a Festive Kick-Off, The Grinch of Zooville, Hanukkah Happenings, and Frozen Wild.
