If you have a trip planned to the west side of the mountains between now and January 30th, then you’ll definitely want to carve out some time and take in the “Wildlanterns” experience at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle.

“Wildlanterns” will take you on a trip through wild places from around the world featuring huge colorful animal and landscape lanterns. Hundreds, if not thousands of LED lights illuminate each exhibit throughout the zoo.

Other events happening within the zoo on a nightly basis include the Tianyu Art Performances a magical and mysterious live traditional Chinese art performance with folk dances, Kung Fu, and lion dances. Also, the “Wild Lights” event has returned this year featuring hundreds of thousands of lights through the Discovery Loop, perfect for a photo op with family and friends.

The exhibit is on now and will surely impress everyone in the family. Since the event is in King County, vaccine verification is required for all guests 12 and older. All ticket holders must show proof of full vaccination at the entry gate.
