The Oakland Zoo debuted a new, socially-distanced experience, Glowfari, on November 20th, 2021 feat. dozens of towering, lit-up animal lanterns across the zoo.

Tickets cost $20 for adults, $18 for children & seniors and you must purchase your tickets in advance. It was initially set to run through January 17, 2021, but they've extended dates from February 5 - March 13, 2021 after they were forced to close in early December.

The mile-long stretch tells visitors the ongoing journey of wildlife, the importance of every species on our planet, and Oakland Zoo's commitment to conservation.

Alameda County was placed back into the state's purple COVID-19 this week so outdoor museums & zoos could reopen at limited capacity according to state guidelines.

Reservations can be made starting February 5th & for tickets and info head here.
