You’ll have the chance to see the Louisville Zoo in a whole new light next year.
The zoo announced Tuesday that it will host one of the largest Chinese lantern festivals in the nation next year, called “Wild Lights: Asian Lantern Festival.”
Guests will walk a path adorned with 65 larger-than-life illuminated displays made up of more than 2,000 silk-covered lantern pieces lit by over 50,000 LED light bulbs.
Among those displays will be a 131-foot-long dragon, a color-changing panda tree and an African savanna display.
Visitors can also interact with some displays as they stroll through a two-story shark tunnel, take a selfie with glowing angel wings or sway on illuminated swings, organizers said.
The event will also include live Asian performances, Chinese crafts and Asian cuisine.
Wild Lights opens March 5 and ends April 25. Tickets go on sale Dec. 1.
