Wild Lights at the Detroit Zoo!

The Detroit Zoo will light up the night for the first time in nearly a decade with Wild Lights, a spectacular holiday light display presented by Bank of America.  More than two million twinkling LED lights will brighten the evening sky and illuminate buildings, animal sculptures and trees through the front of the Zoo. 

Wild Lights guests will take in the lights and sights along a half-mile trail and enjoy holiday entertainment and activities for kids of all ages.  Live performances will include carolers and the Off Broadway Productions mini-musical “Frosty’s Follies”.  A musical light show, cookie decorating, storytelling, ice carving demonstrations and a Lego city and train display will add to the festivities.  Seasonal refreshments, holiday spirits, photos with Santa (through Dec. 23), Wild Lights souvenirs and zoo-themed holiday gifts will be available for purchase.

Wild Lights will be held for 24 nights Nov. 23-24, 29-30; Dec. 1, 6-8, 13-15, 20-23, 26-30, 2013; and Jan. 2-5, 2014.  The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. and remain open until 9 p.m. weeknights and Sundays and 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.  Admission is $8 per person in advance and $10 at the gate for ages 2 and up (under 2 free); parking is $5 per car.  Wild Lights tickets can be purchased at Detroit Zoo main admissions or online at http://www.detroitzoo.org/events/wild-lights, and are also available at all Michigan Kroger stores.
