The Oregon Zoo in Portland is closed to foot traffic because of COVID-19, but you can still enjoy ZooLights from the comfort of your car. And there’s more good news: If you’ve wanted to go, the zoo has extended the hours every night.

The new hours are 5-10 p.m. nightly, except for December 25, when the display will be closed. The last entry is at 10 p.m.

Tickets are timed, cost $50-65 per car (depending on the night you go), and must be purchased online. They’re available seven days in advance. If you want to go on a certain night, get your tickets as soon as they’re available, because they sell out every night.

ZooLights runs through January 10, 2021.

The Oregon Zoo is located at 4001 SW Canyon Road.
