Hattiesburg Zoo

🀩 This is a glimpse of what’s to come this holiday season at the Hattiesburg Zoo. You know the saying β€œit takes a village”? In this case, it is so very true!

Our dream of transforming the zoo for Lights of the Wild would not be possible without the collaborative efforts and hard work of the incredible staff at Jones Companies and the Hattiesburg Convention Commission.

Everyone has gone above and beyond with smiles on their faces, spending countless hours, day and night, planning, preparing, traveling, lifting, packing with care, loading and unloading, driving more than ten 18-wheelers literally one thousand miles, all to bring this event to life. πŸ’ͺπŸ™Œ

Amazing things happen when people come together to create something new! β™₯️

Our wish is for everyone to be part of the magic this December, and see what’s glowing on at the Hattiesburg Zoo! πŸŽ„β­οΈ

There will be hundreds of handmade, led light sculptures, making it the first event of its kind in Mississippi, and the largest display in the Southeast region!✨

- Advanced tickets are $13 per person.

Hattiesburg Zoo

We are proud and excited to be a part of such a marvelous tradition. Nugget and Talon were eager to help as well! Thank you, The University of Southern Mississippi and Southern Miss Alumni Association, for inviting us to take part in this.

Tonight at 6:00 pm, soon-to-be graduates of USM will receive these rings, which were "blessed" by Nugget and Talon earlier this week.
