Lehigh Valley Zoo and presenting sponsor Christmas Décor celebrate the most magical time of the year during the annual Winter Light Spectacular.

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!

New features for 2018 include aerial snow machines that fill the glowing sky with eco and animal friendly snow, new animated scenes throughout the park as thousands of lights dance in-sync to your favorite holiday hits, new and upgraded sound systems and animatronics throughout the park, and more.

The popular nighttime fundraiser for the Zoo attracts over 60,000 guests from nine different states across 38 event nights. The 2018 season of Winter Light Spectacular will feature 37 scheduled event nights. Winter Light Spectacular runs 5:30 - 10 p.m. on Wednesday through Sunday evenings from November 9, 2018, to December 30, 2018. The event will be on break for Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day. Free on-site parking is available as space allows. 

Winter Light Spectacular is the largest fundraiser of the year for the Lehigh Valley Zoo, the leader in animal conservation in the Lehigh Valley. Revenue from these fundraisers go towards animal conservation projects at the zoo to benefit all of our beautiful animals and conservation programs right here in the Lehigh Valley.

Lehigh Valley Zoo’s location, layout, and its dedication to a quality customer experience along with Christmas Decor, the leading residential and commercial decorator in the Lehigh Valley, have partnered together to create a premier holiday destination that is unparalleled in the area.
