STONEHAM, MASS. (WHDH) - The annual holiday lights display at the Stone Zoo in Stoneham opens for the season on Friday.
The dazzling winter wonderland will take visitors on a one-way stroll through the zoo, along tree-lined paths lit by twinkling lights.
“Spanning the 26 acres of Stone Zoo, visitors will walk through the beautifully lit Yukon Creek and see black bears, a bald eagle, Canada lynx, arctic foxes, and even reindeer!” the zoo said in a news release. “Instagrammable opportunities abound, with hundreds of thousands of holiday lights creating the perfect backdrops for photos.”
Several large-scale lantern displays will also be set up around the zoo this year.
