The Zoo Lights Up

Posted on Fri, Nov 23, 2007 at 4:00 AM

The Memphis Zoo is sure to dazzle when SunTrust Zoo Lights kicks off Friday, November 23rd.

Boasting more than a million lights -- including $100,000 worth of new light features and activities -- visitors can tour the display on Friday and Saturday evenings through December 8th and nightly from December 14th to 23rd and December 26th to the 30th.

Among the new features are a Victorian village and a Christmas Around the World display, along with a riverboat, swans, carolers, butterflies, a menorah, a castle, and a fishing Santa. The right jolly old elf will be on hand for photographs with his two live reindeer, Dasher and Dancer. Other activities include a ride on the zoo's train, the North Pole Express, which is free with admission to the zoo. Horse-drawn carriage tours and the new motion simulator ride "Glacier Run" will be available for $3 per person.

For more information, visit the zoo's website.
