Animals Aglow Lantern Festival

The first-ever Animals Aglow lantern festival will bring a dazzling spectacle of lights to the Saint Louis Zoo.

More than 60 larger-than-life Chinese lanterns, along with interactive light displays in the shape of plants and animals, will illuminate paths throughout the Zoo in this nighttime event.

Guests can stroll through the colorful Chinese Dragon Corridor, pose with giant glowing animals and play with interactive displays such as the Moonlight Swings and the Star Stepping Pads.

“We are thrilled to bring this entirely new immersive experience to St. Louis,” Michael Macek, director of the Saint Louis Zoo, said in a recent press release. “It’s a celebration of wildlife, Chinese culture and the artistry of lantern-making.”

Animals Aglow will be open from March 13 to May 5, Wednesday through Sunday from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.
