Lights Before Christmas Extended

Posted Jan 2nd, 2012 by Andi Norman  Category: Arts & Entertainment, Toledo.com


Whether you missed the Lights Before Christmas or your family just wants another chance to take in the “electrical spectacle,” the Toledo Zoo offers one more opportunity to experience the area’s premier holiday attraction. Enjoy the lights one last time at the Encore Presentation — Friday, January 6 and Saturday, January 7, from 5 to 9 p.m. each night.

Your family can see the Zoo’s 85-foot Norway spruce, adorned with more than 35,000 energy-saving LED lights (more lights than the famous tree in Rockefeller Center). You can also generate a little energy of your own with the new Pedal Power cycles in the Museum of Science, where you can light up a tree all by yourself (and maybe even burn off a few holiday calories!). And don’t miss the Dancing Lights display, synchronizing the lights with holiday carol favorites.

Presented by KeyBank, the Lights Before Christmas features more than one million lights, 200 lighted animal images and a whole zoo of Yuletide fun. Admission prices are $11 for adults, $8 for children (2-11) and seniors (60+), and free for children under age 2. Please note that the half-price admission offered during Winter Weekends does not apply to this Encore Presentation. For more information about the Lights Before Christmas and this Encore Presentation, visit toledozoo.org/lights.

The Toledo Zoo is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (closed on New Year’s Day). The Zoo is located on the Anthony Wayne Trail (US 25), four miles south of downtown Toledo. For more information, please visit www.toledozoo.org or call (419) 385-4040. Lucas County residents are admitted free of charge each Monday from 10 a.m. to noon. ID showing proof of residency is required.
