BROOKFIELD, Ill. (WLS) -- Chicagoland's largest light festival is back for its 34th year.

The Brookfield Zoo Holiday Magic event shines with over one-million twinkling LED lights. The fun starts at 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays between Dec. 5 and 31, 2015.

For 12 evenings, guests can enjoy the new Polar Lights, nearly 550 trees decorated by local community organizations and corporations, singing to the animals, professional ice-carving demonstrations, Zoo Chats, photos opportunities with animals, live entertainment, a 41-foot talking tree, a model railroad display, and so much more!

Holiday Magic comes to a celebratory end on Thursday, Dec. 31, when everyone is invited to ring in the New Year at Brookfield Zoo's Zoo Year's Eve celebration. A DJ will have the Holly Jolly Theater rockin' and rollin' with music, fun games, party favors, prizes, and more beginning at 6 p.m. and culminating with an early countdown at 8 p.m.

Ken Grzeslo, with the Chicago Zoological Society, joined ABC7 live from all the fun.
