It’s about to get lit!

Journey through over 50 lighted displays featuring hundreds of beautifully crafted lanterns at Franklin Park Zoo!  Large-scale creatures made of glowing lanterns will be there for you to take in including a 197-foot-long dragon, a 66-foot-long shark tunnel, and 26-foot-tall giant panda. All displays are made with energy-saving LED lights.

Boston Lights will also shine a light on the importance of conserving the incredible biodiversity on our planet. From snow leopards to Panamanian golden frogs to the local Blanding’s turtles, each species plays a role in healthy ecosystems. Visitors to Boston Lights will have the opportunity to learn more about our commitment to conservation and ways that they can participate in wildlife and habitat preservation. All of the lanterns are illuminated with energy saving LED lights.

The same health and safety measures in place for a daytime visit to the zoo are also in place for Boston Lights. These measures include advance online and timed ticketing for a designated day and time, guest capacity limits, one-way paths to control guest flow, clearly designated 6-foot distance markers, enhanced cleaning protocols, and more hand sanitizer stations throughout the zoo. In accordance with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, visitors (over age 2) to the zoo are required to wear face coverings.
