October 20, 2017, BRANSON MO. – Branson’s Promised Land Zoo is excited to introduce Let There Be Lights, a new 2-mile Christmas lights display through the drive thru portion of their zoo. Let There be Lights will be the longest Christmas lights display in the Ozarks. Starting November 3, Promised Land Zoo will extend their hours from 5-11PM in addition to their regular daytime hours to give guests a truly unique “Zoo by Day, Lights by Night” experience.

In addition to the 2-mile drive thru lights display, guests at Promised Land Zoo will enjoy the opportunity to pet baby reindeer, experience a Living Nativity, and take a magical ride on Santa’s Safari Tram through the lights display to meet and feed many different animals from the comfort of a climate controlled bus. The zoo will also provide the opportunity to meet and take professional photos with Santa and his reindeer and browse the Stocking Stuffer Gift Shoppe full of gifts for animal lovers!

“We are excited to offer our guests a unique Christmas experience by stepping into the scene of Jesus’ birth surrounded by live animals,” says Laura Remenar, Director of Branson’s Promised Land Zoo. “In addition to our new gorgeous lights display, baby reindeer and other fun Christmas festivities, we believe our Living Nativity highlights the true meaning of what Christmas is all about.”

This summer, Branson’s Promised Land Zoo opened their 65-acre expansion, which includes a brand new drive thru safari, VIP tram tours, and the addition of over 200 animals to the park including bison, several new camels and a baby giraffe. The zoo plans to continue work on the expansion and build a new cafe, playground and indoor theater for live animal shows.

"This year, our guests will be able to experience Christmas with their hands: feel the soft nose of a reindeer, touch the rough coat of a donkey, kneel on the dirt of the stable. It’s just another way to get closer to what is most important, and that’s what the Promised Land Zoo is all about,” says Josh Remenar, Managing Director for Branson’s Promised Land Zoo.
