If you're looking for something a little different to do in Dublin over the winter months, this might be just the thing for you.

Wild Lights is a brand new experience at Dublin Zoo, its first ever night-time event, which features giant colourful lanterns and illuminated animal sculptures that are inspired by wildlife.

The scale of the event is enormous

The dazzling display of lanterns includes a pride of lions, orangutans, tigers, giraffes, monkeys and much more. There will also be a 16-metre high porcelain elephant tower and a 30-metre long Chinese dragon.

The production of Wild Lights features 12,000 meters of silk, 19,000 bulbs, 5,000 meters of LED lights, 48,000 glass bottles and 215,000 pieces of porcelain weighing 9.5 tonnes — so expect Dublin Zoo to look a little different to the last time you visited.

And that's not all there is to experience at Wild Lights

Chinese performers are providing entertainment at the event and visitors can also browse in a Chinese craft market, where a selection of Chinese foods and hot drinks can be enjoyed.

Here's a taste of what you can expect
