What’s the deal?: With Halloween on its way out, it’s time to start getting in the holiday spirit. The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo Facebook page describes the event:
“Experience the vibrant colors of more than one million lights and unique twists on holiday traditions at this all-new evening event at the Zoo. Wild Winter Lights will feature more than a dozen diverse and interactive zones including Snow Safari, Glacier Glade and Santa’s North Pole Lodge. Each area features unique twists on holiday festivities – from a 16-foot-tall teddy bear and giant sugar cookies to the awe of the A-Roar-A Borealis, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo’s version of the Northern Lights. Visitors will get a chance to participate in interactive games like snowball toss, enjoy a light show on Waterfowl Lake, take photographs with Santa and more.”
