ZooMontana is gearing up for its annual Zoo Lights event.

Jeff Ewelt, ZooMontana executive director, said Monday afternoon Zoo Lights is a family tradition for many people in Billings.

“The best thing about Zoo Lights this year is it is the only event that we are able to do here at ZooMontana this year,” said Ewelt.

Ewelt said the money raised for this event will be used to allow the zoo to provide quality animal care, aid, and conservation efforts while boosting educational programming.

Zoo Lights will open for members only on Dec. 4 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Member cards will be required for entry along with a $3 per car admission fee.

On Dec. 5, Zoo Lights will be open to the general public from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tickets prices are as follows.

· $10 per car
· $15 per van
· $20 per bus
· Wagon rides $14.95 for adults and $8.95 for children 12 and under (free for kids 2 and under)

Ewelt said that due to the pandemic, no more than 16 people will be allowed on wagon rides at a time. He said that if those 16 people are not in a family group, masks will be required.
