The Cincinnati Zoo will once again be transformed into a “Wild Wonderland” for the 37th annual PNC Festival of Lights! Saturday, Nov. 16, 2019 – Saturday, Jan. 4, 2020 - Visit the Zoo website for hours and schedule.
In addition to admiring the beauty of 3 million LED lights, visitors can watch a Madcap black-light puppet show, ride the Toyland Express train ride, marvel at the spectacular Wild Lights show on Swan Lake, or snack at one of two S’mores-n-More stands. Santa will be available for visits starting at 4 p.m., an hour before the rest of the festivities begin.
NEW this year at PNC Festival of Lights! Families will enjoy searching for Fiona fairy statues in Fiona’s Fairyland and taking holiday photos in the Hippo Hut, which will be decorated to provide a festive backdrop! More giant lanterns, including some that fit the soon-to-be-open Roo Valley theme, will be placed around the Zoo. Guests will feel like they’re blanketed by stars in the new, immersive “Northern Lights” light experience. AND, getting into the Zoo will be much easier this year with the additional entrance on Erkenbrecher Ave.
