January in Anchorage may not always seem like the ideal time to leave the house given the temperatures, wind, and darkened skies. Luckily, event planners in the state know exactly what residents and locals need to put their reservations aside—at least for a few hours or so. Here are some events worth checking out at the very beginning of 2020.
When the night goes black, Zoo Lights brings the color back. The Alaska Zoo is stringing up enough lights to dazzle and delight the senses for all. This family-friendly display illuminates walkways, animal exhibits, and more. This event takes place Thursday through Sunday in January, and the cost is $10 for non-members ages three and over. This fee will also include admission to the zoo.
