Dublin Zoo is excited to announce that Wild Lights, Ireland’s award-winning night-time spectacular opens this Thursday!

Last year’s sold-out event returns for 2018 with a brand-new theme, “Ocean of Light”, with an entirely new cast of illuminated silk lanterns, inspired by the wonders of the life aquatic. Dive into an Ocean of Light and spot hammerhead sharks, colossal blue whales and dainty seahorses!

Wild Lights will take place in Dublin Zoo from Thursday, 1st November until Sunday 6th, January from 5pm – 9pm. Wild Lights will be open every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening in November extending to seven nights a week in December and into January.

In addition to Ocean of Light, three new areas feature in this year’s enchanting experience - Winter Wonderland, home to Arctic favourites such as polar bears and walruses, Celebrating China bringing a flavour of the Orient and The North Pole, home to Santa’s workshop, a dazzling 16-metre high silk Christmas tree and a host of festive displays.

Traditional Chinese performers will wow the crowds, who can also browse the newly extended craft market for Christmas gifts and enjoy a delicious array of Asian foods.
