GET IN THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT WITH EC LOS ANGELES!
In addition to ensuring that we offer the best English Courses in Los Angeles, EC is always looking to enrich our students’ experience with fun activities both in and out of school. We have a great calendar of events and activities that we offer to our students every month.
This weekend, as part of it’s ongoing festivities, the LA Zoo is once again putting on a light show with a fun twist!
After going dark in 2009, holiday lights return to Griffith Park—this time at the LA Zoo. Whereas the old DWP Holiday Lights brought motorists careening through the park’s windy roads, the zoo’s fest will find visitors trekking through the front half of the festively illuminated grounds on foot. Though most of the animals will be asleep, you will be able to see reindeer and sit for a photo with Santa.
There’s a charming theme that ties everything together: A group of LED monkeys have commandeered a Christmas tree and the zoo’s power supply. The glowing “Animal Power” cord they’ve draped across the grounds electrifies everything from desert flora laced with lights to a purple, disco ball-filled forest. Standout displays include elephant statues animated with projection mapping, a twinkly light tunnel and “ZOOray for Hollywood,” a festive interpretation of LA landmarks. For better or worse, it’s a tasteful, sometimes understated display—there’s no snow or strobe lights, and the holiday music is sporadic—but LA Zoo Lights is sure to become an LA holiday staple.
Tip: Buy your tickets in advance to avoid the worst of the entry lines. Also, tickets are $5 cheaper until December 11. And wear comfortable shoes; the lights only cover a fraction of the zoo grounds, but you’ll be shuffling slightly uphill for most of the way.
