The attraction at the Houston Zoo features more than 2 million sparkling lights, life-size animal sculptures, strolling carolers and a walk-through snow globe. New this year will be an African Forest with glowing, larger-than-life ornaments. While enjoying the lights, visitors can warm themselves with spiked hot chocolate, wine and beer. For kids, there's pizza, funnel cakes and s'mores.
Elvis impersonator Vince King will perform holiday music, as well as the King's standards, at the Butler Longhorn Museum. Seating is limited.
