Thanksgiving is this Thursday, the 2021 holiday season is officially upon us! If you're looking for some family fun and would like to "get into the spirit" make the trip to Oklahoma City to the OKC Zoo and check out their "Safari Lights." It's an amazing drive-through and walk-through Christmas experience with lights and more!

The OKC Zoo "Safari Lights" features a drive-through where you'll see 59 different animal-themed displays and sculptures that are all lit up. After you drive through you can do the walk-through that has interactive light exhibits and winds its way through the Entry Plaza, Children's Zoo, and the Dino Safari area.

Along with all the holiday lights and sculptures, they also have kid's activities, holiday treats and you can even visit Santa Claus if you go on the weekends. The family and I are already planning our trip. Get a sneak peek of what you can expect at the OKC Zoo "Safari Lights" by hitting play on the video below:

The OKC Zoo "Safari Lights" is going on now through Sunday, January 9th (01-09-22) from 5:30 pm to 11:00 pm daily. You'll need to purchase your tickets in advance, it's by reservation only. To get tickets and make your reservations visit the official site They have different packages available. You can do both the Drive-through, which includes re-entry for the walk-through. Or you can just do the walk-through.

They also offer special discounts to "Zoo Friends Members" as well. For pricing and all the details click here to go to the official OKZ Zoo website. I've never been before so I think this will be the year the family and I load up in the car and head to the OKC Zoo for "Safari Lights." Kind of a little day-cation and quick holiday getaway to Oklahoma City. Hit Bricktown while we're there and grab a bite to eat while we're at it.

Maybe hit the "Chickasha Festival of Lights" on our way there, or on our way back. We go every year and since it's one the way, why not? Then when we get back in town make a trip through Lawton, Fort Sill's "Holiday in the Park." We could hit all 3 in one night for a Christmas light extravaganza! Now that sounds like a plan!
