This new exhibit at the Toledo Zoo is wonderful. It is really worth going to, and I think kids will like it. Reminds me of the first time I saw the Lights Before Christmas. The lanterns are super cool!

This is a wonderful zoo to visit! We love our Zoo! It is a little pricey but I find that most of the zoos are pricey.

The "luminous Nights" illuminated "sculptures" runs through October 29. It's like "Lights Before Christmas" but in the fall. Many illuminated animals, trees, flowers, and sculptures. Makes for a nice fall evening!

Depends on the weather. Not as busy then in summer or warmer weather. Light before Christmas starts nov 17, 2017 thru dec 31. It is a great time to grab a cup of hot coco and walk around the zoo.
