We invite you to visit our lighted parade of animals that take over the zoo each winter. They are big, bright and beautiful. From front to back, the zoo is decorated with lighted animal displays – colorful, whimsical and even animated with music. You can walk under canopies of light and check out our animals. We have added new light displays to the show, so bring your camera and family or friends to enjoy the magic.
