Portland Walking Tours

When the animals go to bed, the lights come out to play.

November 27th, 2009

Life-size animal silhouettes and moving light sculptures come alive. See the Portland Zoo transformed into a winter wonderland, aglow with nearly a million lights.

More than 200 animated animals swing through trees, jump across lawns, hide in bushes and appear in places where they’re least expected. Displays include swinging monkeys, leaping frogs, flying bats, diving penguins and a perfect-for-photos light sculpture featuring a dozen animals.

The annual festival begins this weekend, Sunday, November 29th and lasts through the beginning of 2010. Visit the Zoo for more information.
