This winter, Dublin Zoo will host a brand new event called Wild Lights.
The magical night-time event features giant colourful lanterns and illuminated animal sculptures, inspired by wildlife.
Visitors will follow the enchanted trail, where they will discover a dazzling array of beautifully crafted enormous silk lanterns. They will then be wowed by the Chinese performers and crafts while enjoying Chinese foods and warm drinks.
The production of Wild Lights will feature: 12,000 meters of silk, 19,000 bulbs, 5,000 meters of LED lights, 48,000 glass bottles and 215,000 pieces of porcelain weighing 9.5 tonnes.
Visitors will marvel at the lanterns which will include a pride of lions, orangutans, tigers, giraffe, monkeys and much more! Other highlights include a 16-metre high porcelain elephant tower and a 30-metre long Chinese dragon. Everything will be handmade specifically for Dublin Zoo.
Lighting up the skyline of Dublin, this awe-inspiring festival of lights promises to be an unforgettable experience where friends, families and groups can come together during the festive period.
Wild Lights will run from 3rd November-7th January.
