The Houston Zoo says Zoo Lights has been canceled Saturday, Nov. 28 due to heavy rain.

“The safety of zoo staff, guests, and animals is the Zoo’s top priority. The animals have safe and secure barns and night houses that have been constructed to weather storms like this one,” the Houston Zoo said in a statement.


The lights have been canceled for Friday and now Saturday.

Those who have already purchased tickets for the event will be able to visit on a future date, zoo officials say. Guests who purchased tickets should check their emails for details.

The Zoo says they will update plans to reopen as the weather event continues.

Off and on heavy rain can be expected Friday and Saturday with two-day totals more than five inches possible.

Cold air will follow beginning Sunday and most of next week looks pretty chilly with lows near freezing possible on Tuesday.
