Wild Winter Lights returns to Cleveland Metroparks Zoo

Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is again transforming into a winter wonderland this holiday season with Wild Winter Lights.  In its fourth year, Wild Winter Lights will add over 1.5 million lights across holiday-themed areas including Candyland, Enchanted Forest, Starry Skies, Future for Wildlife Trail and Santa’s Workshop, where guests can take photos with Santa Claus.  Guests can again experience this year’s Wild Winter Lights on foot or in their personal vehicle on select dates.

Additional highlights of this year’s event include carousel rides, costumed characters, model train displays, ice carvers and the return of the dynamic light show featuring an enchanting 50-foot tree. 

Wild Winter Lights runs from 5:30–10:30 pm on select dates through December 30, 2022.
