Living Desert celebrating 25 years of Wildlights

The Living Desert zoo’s annual Christmas celebration, “Wildlights,” will continue through Christmas Eve.

The zoo is celebrating 25 years of the holiday tradition, which brings Santa and his reindeer to the desert. Two reindeer, 8-year-old Cookie and 8-month-old Thunder, will be on hand for up-close and personal viewings, with a select number of guests able to purchase the opportunity to feed and take pictures with the reindeer.
