Holiday Wildlights at The Columbus Zoo
Every Year The Columbus Zoo Decks Their Grounds With Beautiful Twinkling Christmas Lights
We took a trip to the Columbus Zoo a couple weeks ago to check out their holiday lights. The kids had a blast checking out all the animals and the beautiful light show.
The Columbus Zoo is open in the evenings with their light show throughout the holiday season. Some of the animal exhibits are even open (including some of Santa's reindeer), and there are even some indoor exhibits, and kids can take a carousel ride.
They have a light show over the center of the zoo, with lights blinking to the music several times a night.
It's a wonderful night of family entertainment and fun. I captured quite a few of my favorites lights and scenes on camera, so I thought I'd share a few of them with you here today.
Columbus Zoo Light Show Over The Lake
Every half hour or so there was a light show on the lake with lights flashing to the music.
