Walk through a winter wonderland complete with Santa Claus, zoo animals, hot chocolate and holiday cheer as The Philadelphia Zoo presents its annual Zoo Noel, holiday weekends designed for those brimming with Christmas spirit.
Find Santa Claus in the treehouse at the zoo at 11 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. Join him for photos and the opportunity to share holiday wish lists.
In addition to real life visits and photos with Santa Claus, check out models of jolly old St. Nick placed in recreations of locations across the globe — from the arctic to rainforest to beyond.
Also get some holiday shopping done at the Little Elves gift shop.
Be sure to visit with the zoo’s well-loved animals like the snow leopards, polar bears and red pandas.
It’s the final weekend of Zoo Noel, so be sure to catch it before it’s gone!
Just purchase a general admission ticket to the zoo and experience all of the wonder of the season.
