Zoo Tampa Christmas in the Wild

Published on 12/24/21: If you’re looking for something a bit different, ZooTampa at Lowry Park has “Christmas in the Wild” going on until December 30th. I just confirmed they have ticket availability between Dec 26th-30th. Cost is .95, though if you’re a member of the zoo, it’s free. So whether you attend this year or another year, keep it on your radar.

ZooTampa Decorated For the Holidays

In short, the zoo is decorated, they provide a few activities such as cookie decorating and also have some rides operating. We certainly saw animals, though keep in mind many are sleeping. Plus, the obvious, ‘not as easy to see them at night’ (except those in areas with lights). Made for a fun evening with friends and something a bit different! They serve alcohol as well, even a full bar in one area. 🍷🍻

From ZooTampa: “It’s the most wonderful time of the year at ZooTampa with the return of Christmas in the Wild, featuring one of Tampa Bay’s largest light displays, delectable holiday treats, amazing wildlife and new festive adventures. This year is BIGGER, better, and brighter than ever, with six new illuminated zones of lights, festive entertainment that the whole family will enjoy.
Christmas in the Wild is a limited capacity event. Advanced purchase tickets and timed reservations are strongly encouraged and the only way to guarantee admission.”

Google Reviews: 19,557 with a 4.6/5 Average (that’s for the zoo itself, as Google doesn’t have ranking for C.I.T.W.

Mike Braswell is a Tampa Bay Realtor, serving St Petersburg, Clearwater, all nearby beaches and more. Mike started LovingStPete in October of 2020 after a difficult year took its toll on local businesses. After being cooped up for portions of 2020 (lockdown) Mike and his son decided to get out and explore, helping spread the good word about the local area he loves so much. Often even doing gift card giveaways to support local. LovingStPete is now followed by over 48 thousand people on social media! The majority of posts are informative on fun parks, activities, day trips, great restaurants, and in general provide a comprehensive tour of the area!

Soon after receiving his bachelors in Management Information Systems, Mike developed and then operated a vacation rental advertising business for 10+ years as CEO/Owner. The business was eventually acquired by VRBO. Mike has earned the trust of many large clients over the years. Such as NFL, Wynn Resorts, Blue Cross Blue Shield, VISA, Genuine Parts Company (NAPA Auto Parts), AT&T, and other Fortune 500 companies.

When not spending time with his beautiful wife and energetic son, Mike enjoys boating and is also an avid tennis player. An interesting fact about Mike is that he grew up on an avocado farm with over 15 varieties, some of which you can find in our local Publix/Winn Dixie as his dad still farms the same farm at 87 years old!
