There are over a million twinkling lights that will turn the zoo into a magical winter wonderland. There are 16 illuminated zones to check out this year, up from 14 last years. The two new zones are Shimmer River and LumiNature Lane.

The zoo posted on Facebook, "Our spectacular winter light show experience, LumiNature presented by PNC, returns this holiday season for more dazzling displays, shimmering sights, lively performers and magical memories."


Make sure to take a selfie infront of the 22-foot-tall butterfly tree with over 4,000 butterflies. There's also a 40-foot-tall penguin with over 40,000 lights to take pictures near and a train ride under a canopy with 200,000 lights on it.
