Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is again transforming into a winter wonderland this holiday season with Wild Winter Lights presented by NOPEC. This year’s event features hundreds of dazzling displays along the holiday trail through Cleveland Metroparks Zoo beginning November 15.
In its fourth year, Wild Winter Lights will add over 1.5 million lights across holiday-themed areas including Candyland, Enchanted Forest, Starry Skies, Future for Wildlife Trail and Santa’s Workshop, where guests can take photos with Santa Claus. Guests can again experience this year’s Wild Winter Lights on foot or in their personal vehicle on select dates.
“This year’s event promises to deliver festive fun for all ages along our holiday trail including a three-story-tall enchanted castle,” said Kelly Manderfield, Cleveland Metroparks Chief Marketing Officer. “We are grateful for the support from our community partners to continue the tradition of celebrating the holiday season at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo.”
Additional highlights of this year’s event include carousel rides, costumed characters, model train displays, ice carvers and the return of the dynamic light show featuring an enchanting 50-foot tree.
