Lehigh Valley Zoo and presenting sponsor Christmas Décor are filled with excitement for the most magical time of the year as they kick off the fifth season of Winter Light Spectacular on Friday, November 9, 2018!
The Lehigh Valley Zoo’s location, layout, and its dedication to a quality customer experience paired with Christmas Décor, the leading residential and commercial decorator in the Lehigh Valley, have partnered together to create one of the region's premier holiday destinations.
Bundle up and enjoy the beauty of nature as you stroll through tree-lined paths lit up by over 1.1 million twinkling lights and themed animated displays. Warm up next to the cozy outdoor fire pits while enjoying hot cocoa and s’mores. Don’t forget the camera to capture the children’s delight when they encounter Santa, The Grinch, Woody, Buzz, Elsa, Princess Belle, Olaf, Minions, and friends!
Last season, the popular nighttime fundraiser for the Zoo attracted over 63,400 guests from nine different states across 38 event nights. This season’s Winter Light Spectacular will feature 37 scheduled event nights, running 5:30 - 10 p.m. on Wednesday through Sunday from November 9, 2018, to December 30, 2018.
