{December 30, 2020}   Wild Lights…A Wonderful Experience

This is one of those winter holiday only experiences. If you live or are traveling to the St. Louis area during the holidays, this experience is a must!

Wild Lights takes place at the St. Louis Zoo, this year from November 27 through January 2nd. So…if you are in St. Louis, or near it, or plan on coming to St. Louis and want to experience the 1 million lights, come on! During the week it’s $10.95 for non-members and weekends is $12.95 for non-members. Members, I’m sure, already know how much tickets are!

This is a wonderful spectacle of lights, lights, and more lights, and more lights. There were lights in and on the trees, structures made of lights, animals made of lights, trees, flowers, you name it, they made it out of lights. Some were more complicated than others, some striking, some just cute. There were a few animals about that we could see, polar bears and sea lions, didn’t want to wait on the line for the penguins, we did wait to go through the insectarium to see the butterflies, or flutter-byes as I like to call them, unfortunately, after walking through the creepy crawler section, the butterfly wing, pun intended, was closed. Boo.

It was a lovely evening and experience. There were a lot of people, but it never felt crazy crowded and everyone was wearing masks and we most were socially distant, we felt comfortable. The weather was cool and crisp, but as long as you kept moving, you didn’t get too cold. Everywhere you looked, there was something to see, something to ooh and awe at, something shining, sparkling, flashing, or just glowing.

I love events like these, they aren’t here very long, you know they put a lot of thought into the planning into the event just to know the wonderment on peoples faces and in their eyes. They did it for the love of the animals and the holidays. We need more cheer!

If you have the opportunity, don’t miss it, it’s so worth it and just what we need right now!
