Spectacular Holiday Nights Returns to Billings, 11/24 at ZooMontana
Ready or not, the holidays are right around the corner and if you missed Holiday Nights at ZooMontana last year, don't make the same mistake this year. After decades of the zoo hosting its own "ZooLights" event, the display was honestly getting tired. In 2022, a new display called Holiday Nights took over, and it's spectacular.
Beginning November 24, the zoo transforms into a holiday wonderland.
Soon, you'll see the glow in the night sky coming from the grounds of ZooMontana. The lights are so bright (and there are so many of them) that it literally lights up the sky. The display opens to the public on November 24 and runs Thursday - Sunday until December 24. It will be open every night from December 26 - January 1.
More than just a light show.
Holiday Nights feel like you've stepped into the most outrageous Hallmark Christmas movie set you've ever seen. Expect more live entertainment this year too. Organizers wrote,
The community stage will be buzzing with live performances, including carolers, dance troupes, and local artists, adding a harmonious soundtrack to your holiday stroll. Whether you're a fan of classic carols or contemporary holiday hits, you're sure to find something that warms your heart.
Food, drinks, Santa, and more.
Adding to the holiday charm, you'll encounter a range of activities at Holiday Nights, including lots of tasty foods and drinks (including adult beverages). Visitors will likely bump into holiday characters like Santa, elves, princesses and even the dastardly Grinch will be roaming the grounds.
Go big and reserve a Smore's tent!
Winter nights can get chilly, and the super-popular Smores's Tents will be back again this year. Offering a break from the wind, your own personal firepit, Smore's ingredients, and seating for five, these tents sold out quickly last year.
