ZooLights Express—powered by Pepco—will bring the colorful glow of Washington, D.C.’s beloved Smithsonian’s National Zoo holiday tradition into the community beginning today, Nov. 27.

Usually held onsite at the Zoo for the past 13 years, ZooLights has been reimagined into ZooLights Express, a distanced and safe way to bring joy and bit of holiday sparkle to D.C. residents.

Festively decorated with light displays and featuring “Panda Claws,” the 24-foot ZooLights Express truck will hit the road, visiting one Washington, D.C. ward each Friday and Saturday from 6 to 8 p.m.:

  • Friday, Nov. 27 | Ward 1
  • Saturday, Nov. 28 | Ward 2
  • Friday, Dec. 4 | Ward 3
  • Saturday, Dec. 5 | Ward 4
  • Friday, Dec. 11| Ward 5
  • Saturday, Dec. 12 | Ward 6
  • Friday, Dec. 18 | Ward 7
  • Saturday, Dec. 19 | Ward 8

The specific ZooLights Express routes are posted at nationalzoo.si.edu.
