Wild Lights at the Detroit Zoo
Ready to start seeing some holiday lights? Look no further than the Detroit Zoo! Every weekend until December 31, visitors to the Detroit Zoo will be able to see the zoo in an entirely new light. Between 5:30 PM and 9:00 PM, the Detroit Zoo will be illuminated by five million LED lights on trees, buildings, and on animal shaped sculptures as part of their annual Wild Lights events.
During Wild Lights, visitors will also be able to enjoy ice carving demonstrations, live entertainment, arts and crafts, and more. Instead of visiting Santa Claus, kids can meet and have their picture taken with Santa Paws up until December 23rd.
In the Ford Education Center, there is the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibit, featuring 100 remarkable examples of wildlife photography selected by the Natural History Museum of London and the BBC.
Perhaps you’ve seen the movie The Polar Express, but how would you like to feel like you’re part of the movie? The zoo will also be having a special presentation of The Polar Express 4-D Experience in their 4-D theater just for the Wild Lights event.
Wild Lights will be held on December 11-14, 18-23, and 26-31. Parking is $6 and admission is $8.00 per person over the age of 2. Children under 2 are admitted for free!
