THE BRONX — The holidays may be different this year, but the Bronx Zoo is hoping to brighten up people’s spirits with their Holiday Lights display.

The holiday-favorite light experience makes a comeback, bringing New Yorkers much-needed joy amid the pandemic.

Holiday Lights occur on select dates from Nov. 20 to Jan 10.

This year’s experience encompasses a larger area of the zoo and has been set up to allow proper social distancing.
