Our favourite holiday date is back! There really isn’t anything better than a Zoolights date to get into the holiday season. Whether you’re a new flame or the old ball and chain- the magic of the lights will always bring a spark to date night! This year, The Calgary Zoo has a few exciting additions to make date night at The Zoo even better. Now, you can ice skate, visit santa and check out a 16 ft singing Christmas tree!
Zoolights is a little sweeter this holiday season thanks to our friends at Fiasco Gelato who have built a Winter Wonderland inside The Calgary Zoo. The Fiasco Ice Castle has a full gelato ice bar, ice sculpted vespas and was built with jars of holiday collection pints. Visit the ice palace on Saturday’s and Sunday’s and you’ll be able to grab a sample of the delicious Fiasco holiday collection. We’re drooling over this years signature Holiday flavours – Sticky toffee pudding, dark chocolate orange, classic eggnog and cranberry pear sorbetto. And to make things even more amazing- $1 from every Ltd. Edition pint of the holiday collection is going right back to our furry friends at The Calgary Zoo! So, when you are feeling sad that you’re on your tenth pint of sticky toffee pudding gelato- don’t, It’s all for a good cause. (Calories don’t count over the holidays anyways!)
Zoolights is blissful during the holidays- crackling fire pits, hot cocoa ( topped with Fiasco’s signature marshmallows), festive choirs singing and singing Christmas trees- not to forget the 1.5 million twinkling lights that make for the best spectacle of the season.
Take a break from the hustle and bustle of the season and make time to actually enjoy it. Take in the lights, enjoy a treat and some quality time with your sweetheart.
Dress cozy, and cuddle up to your date at The Calgary Zoo!
Show us your zoo lights date using #gelatolove and #itsdatenight and we’ll enter you into our date night giveaway this December where we are giving away a special gift every day from December 1-24th!
