Waiting for the Weekend? Lights Before Christmas offersThursday Extras

The Toledo Zoo brings you a weekend of fun one day early with Thursday evening extras. Every Thursday through Dec. 31, 2011 at the Lights Before Christmas, you´ll enjoy ice-carving demonstrations, local radio station broadcasts and - courtesy of our longtime sponsor, KeyBank -- free 3-D glasses giveaways, 5 - 7 p.m., in the Main Plaza (to make the Lights even more magical!).

That´s on top of the festivities that Lights Before Christmas visitors already enjoy, from strolling carolers, hot chocolate and other holiday treats to rides (weather permitting) on the Safari Railway and African Animal Carousel. Our award-winning children´s zoo, Nature´s Neighborhood, is open, too, brimming with kids´ creative activities. And don´t forget Santa! The jolly old elf hears children´s Christmas wishes in the Zoo´s Indoor Theatre through December 23.

The Lights Before Christmas is a holiday attraction in Northern Ohio since it started in 1986. This “electrical spectacle” offers more than a million lights (60 percent energy-efficient LED) in the area´s wildest setting. It runs through December 31 and is closed only on Christmas Eve night and Christmas Day.

Hours are 5 - 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday (the Zoo closes at 9 p.m.); Friday through Sunday hours are 5 - 9 p.m. (the Zoo closes at 10 p.m.). Admission is $11 for adults, $8 for children (2-11) and seniors (60+), and free for children under age 2.  Tickets are available online, at the Zoo gates and at KeyBank locations in the area. Toledo Zoo members receive one free visit to the Lights Before Christmas.
