Wild Lights returns to Louisville Zoo

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The Louisville Zoo’s wildly popular Wild Lights sponsored by T-Mobile returns March 19 through May 30. 

Guests can expect to see a new lineup of lanterns including more than 70 larger-than-life illuminated displays made of thousands of silk-covered pieces lit by over 50,000 LED lightbulbs.

Wild Lights will include zoo animals, marine animals, dinosaurs and mythical animals. Interactive and photo opportunity displays include a pumpkin carriage, angel wings and lit walking stars along with a bubbling lotus corridor, a tyrannosaurus tunnel and a 49-foot animatronic whale.

Wild Lights is in partnership with Tianyu Arts & Culture, an international event design company. Tianyu has produced 42 lantern events in 24 cities welcoming over 3 million visitors. 

The event is wheelchair and stroller friendly on a paved path. The festival will take place 6:30 – 10:30 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday nights from March 19 through May 30 and daily March 24 through April 4.
