Wild Lights at Louisville Zoo
June 2 @ 6:30 pm - 10:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Sunday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until June 5, 2022
See the Zoo in a whole new light as you enjoy one of the largest lantern festivals in the nation featuring thousands of handcrafted silk-covered lanterns aglow with more than 50,000 LED light bulbs.
Embark on a journey to the far east as you stroll alongside dramatic cultural displays celebrating the rich heritage and craftsmanship of lantern artisans. Dramatic archways illuminate the way on a magical journey past colorful peacocks, slithering serpents, and a beautiful African savanna. Majestic butterflies beckon you into a world of larger-than-life insects and animals from all around the world. Kids (or kids at heart) can become part of the magic while swaying on our glowing moonlight swings or stepping inside a gigantic kaleidoscope for some whirling, twirling fun. The wonder of Wild Lights is sure to create glowing smiles and bright memories for guests of all ages.
