    Jungle Bells - December 14 through January 6

    An urban paradise for all ages, the San Diego Zoo is a must-see in Southern California, with more than 4,000 rare & fascinating animals. See giant pandas, Komodo dragons, orangutans, koalas, flamingos, polar bears, and more. With animal encounters, interactive experiences, and a lively atmosphere, it's a great place for family fun and gathering friends.

    During Jungle Bells Presented by California Coast Credit Union the San Diego Zoo is transformed into a wild wonderland of twinkling lights, merry-making performances, and festive foods. From December 14 through January 6, special displays and scheduled events fill the Zoo and guests with holiday cheer.

    Santa will be on hand before Christmas to visit with youngsters, and some of his elves keep things hopping with an energetic trampoline performance, the Toy Shop Hop. For more Santa-themed adventures, there is a special 4-D experience: an amazing train ride to the North Pole through the magic of ThePolar Express! For a real-life train adventure, the beloved miniature train outside the Zoo gates will be waiting for you to get "all aboooooard!"

    Jungle Bells is full of memorable experiences, from Dr. Zoolittle’s animal-themed version of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas("...not a creature was stirring, not even a 'roo.") to the Northern Frontier Holiday Forest aglow with stunning, specially decorated and lit trees. The sounds of the season fill the air with an interactive jingly, jazzy carol session, the sweet harmonies of an acapella group, and a strolling musician. Even though it is the darkest time of year, the grounds are filled with colorful lights in the form of light sculptures of animals, and two "dancing light" experiences set to holiday music, and other "cool" surprises.

    We are pleased to once again welcome California Coast Credit Union as the Presenting Sponsor for Jungle Bells 2018. With over 23 branches in Southern California, California Coast is the third largest credit union in the county. It’s also San Diego's oldest financial institution (almost as old as the Zoo), having been founded in 1929 by teachers. While animals and banking are not a combination you would naturally think of, many California Coast members are passionate about the animals in their lives.

    Parking at the Zoo is Free.
