Glow Wild: An Animal Lantern Celebration will close Monday, January 17th! Definitely put this event on the family itinerary if you were unable to take it in during the holidays. With the shortened winter days, everyone can experience the lantern display prior to the dinner hour. So bundle up the family, and head on out to the Birmingham Zoo.
In a unique lantern production display, Glow Wild: An Animal Lantern Celebration depicts an array of beautiful wildlife from around the world. Experience plant and animal lantern creations such as cheetahs, birds, and more, some soaring over 25 feet into the air!
Travel on the Red Diamond Radiant Express Train or ride on the Protective Life Jingle Bell Carousel all winter long as you “Glow Wild” at the Birmingham Zoo.
The Birmingham Zoo suggests you’ll need one hour and thirty minutes to fully enjoy the Glow Wild experience. More time needs to be allowed if your family plans to ride the train or carousel.
