The Columbus Zoo WildLights Display

by Linette

My sisters and I took our kids to the Columbus Zoo Wildlights display a couple weeks ago, and we all had a blast checking out all the lights and exhibits.

The light show at the Columbus Zoo runs through the end of the year. I was surprised, there’s quite a bit to do and see. They have a light show where all the lights blink to the beat of the music every hour. Here’s a video of it, but it was way more impressive to see the show live.

Here’s a shot of the lights around the lake where they had the light show.

Visiting a light show would be a fun holiday activity for a birthday party, or children’s Christmas party.

I would definitely recommend checking out the Wildlights show if you’re in the Columbus area this holiday season, you can find their holiday hours at the Columbus Zoo website.
