Hollywood ZooLAbration

We’ve added a few surprises to our “Hollywood ZooLAbration” light exhibit, including a shout-out to our long-time partner, 99 Cents Only Stores. They’ve been a generous sponsor since the event launched three years ago, and the event wouldn’t be the same without their support. Keep an eye out for their iconic logo!
