Lighting & Music Extravaganza...All NEW for 2012!
November 9, 2012 - January 6, 2013
Prepare to be amazed at this LED light show on the lower level patio nightly during the Winter Festival of Lights! This exciting show has 35,500 lights choreographed to exciting holiday music.
The show was designed by noted lighting engineer, Carson Williams. You will recognize Carson’s work from the extraordinary light show he created in his home town of Cincinnati that was featured nationally on the major TV networks. All of the lights in this show are Light Emitting Diodes, or LED lights, and use a fraction of the energy required by traditional Christmas lights.
This show is presented nightly during the Winter Festival of Lights. Admission included with zoo admission.
Admission: Adults: $8.00, Ages 3-12: $5.50, Ages 2 & under are free. Members admitted free.
