Lincoln Park Zoo hosted more than half a million guests during the 2014-15 season of ZooLights, a new record for the North Side attraction.
The zoo counted 502,000 guests during the 20th anniversary season of the holiday event that features more than 2 million lights, according to a statement from the zoo.
“It’s been incredible watching ZooLights transform from a holiday light spectacular into a multi-generational tradition,” Dana Jussaume, zoo director of sales and events, said in the statement.
“The opportunity to share Lincoln Park Zoo with this many people is the best gift we could have asked for this year,” she added.
If you missed ZooLights but still want to check out the zoo this winter, ice skating remains open on weekends through March 1.
