Surround yourself with the beauty of the holiday season as the Indianapolis Zoo returns with the 51st year of Christmas at the Zoo presented by Donatos and Teachers Credit Union. This year’s celebration kicks off Nov. 23 and continues daily through Dec. 30, closed only on Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Day. Stop by Santa’s Village under the Bicentennial Pavilion, decorate cookies with Mrs. Claus, visit with Santa in his study and get up close and personal with penguins. Come early to visit with wintertime animals, tigers, bears, seals and more. Then stay late to watch as the Zoo transforms into a winter wonderland covered in lights.
