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. The show runs on the lower level patio every 20 minutes from 5pm – 8pm Sun - Thurs and 5pm - 9pm Fri - Sat. This year’s program features: "Jazzy Let It Snow" by Brian Setzer, "Deck the Halls" instrumental mix, "Custom made mix" - No Artist, "Let It Go" Idina Menzel and "Nutrocker" by TSO
