Are you prepared to be dazzled? The 36th Annual PNC Festival of Lights at the Cincinnati Zoo is going on now!
Visitors can admire three million LED lights and larger-than-life animal lanterns as they light up the zoo creating this year’s theme, “Wild Wonderland.”
The brilliant lights aren’t the only draw. Families can take a ride on the BB&T Toyland Express, watch the Wild Lights show on Swan Lake, search for fairies in Fairyland and have photos taken with Santa Claus.
A special viewing of The Polar Express 4-D Experience will be played in the FX4-D theater. Tickets for show time can be purchased in advance.
To make your visit easier, and save money, plan-ahead pricing is new this year. Tickets can be purchased for select dates online in advance. Prices for traditionally lower traffic nights, such as Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, will be as much as half less than those purchased for the most popular nights.
Discount tickets are also available at any area Kroger, good for $2 off adult and $1 off child admission any night of the event.
