    Come for the day and stay for the 36th Annual PNC Festival of Lights Visits with Santa start at 4pm, nightly through Dec. 23rd. (Included with your General Admission ticket)
    The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden will once again be transformed into a “Wild Wonderland” for the 36th annual PNC Festival of Lights! The #1 Zoo Lights display in the country, according to a USA Today poll, will be open Sundays through Thursdays from 5 to 9 p.m. and 5 to 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Santa will be available for visits and photos starting at 4 p.m. daily, an hour before the rest of the festivities begin. This year’s celebration will be bigger and brighter than ever with three million LED lights and larger-than-life animal lanterns placed throughout the Zoo.

    The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden is the 2nd oldest zoo in the country with over 500 animal species and 3,000 plant species. Consistently voted one of the top zoos in the country and voted the #1 family attraction in Cincinnati by Zagat Survey. In June 2013 we opened the largest exhibit – AFRICA! This summer, we opened the next exciting phase of AFRICA by adding Meerkats and Painted Dogs! This spectacular exhibit offers open-air, dramatic views of some of Africa’s most powerful predators – lions and cheetahs. The expanded Giraffe Ridge with covered gazebo allows more access and feeding opportunity with these gentle giants. Visit the “greenest” Zoo in America!
