Wild Lights

recurring event

See the Zoo in a whole new light as you enjoy one of the largest lantern festivals in the nation featuring thousands of handcrafted silk-covered lanterns aglow with more than 50,000 LED light bulbs.

This year, experience more than 70 NEW lantern displays artfully placed throughout the 1.4-mile paved walkway throughout the Zoo’s 130- acre park. We invite you to travel back in time with us to walk alongside prehistoric dinosaurs but, beware — there’s a hungry T-Rex ready and waiting to thrill and delight you!

Dive in and experience dazzling ocean scenes including a magnificent swimming whale, playful sea turtles, and scurrying crabs. Dramatic archways illuminate the way on a magical journey past colorful peacocks, slithering serpents, and even a lion family glowing with pride. Kids (or kids at heart) can become part of the magic while leaping from star to star creating their own cosmic tunes, or stepping inside a larger-than-life kaleidoscope for some whirling, twirling fun. The wonder of Wild Lights sponsored by T-Mobile is sure to create glowing smiles and bright memories for guests of all ages.

Wild Lights is a rain or shine event. No refunds, rain checks or exchanges are available for this important fundraiser. When purchasing tickets online, make sure your email is correct to receive your tickets. Masks are required for all guests age 5 and over.
