HolidayLights at CALM is the seasonal attraction families look forward to each year. New to visitors will be an ocean of aquatic animals including dolphins, flying fish, whales, octopus and pelicans. A synchronized symphony of multi-colored tree lights and music, plus the traditional family-friendly displays of resplendent animals and Kern County landscapes. It is all in the great outdoors at CALM, home to 250 injured or abandoned animals native to California.
