Christmas is a time for spectacle and childlike wonder — which is why Wild Lights at Dublin Zoo is an experience you may not want to miss this festive season.
This is the first ever night-time event to take place at Dublin Zoo, where intricate handmade lanterns have been crafted to resemble wild animals and illuminated from within to create a dazzling effect.
Who's the event aimed at?
Pretty much everyone. Children and adults alike can find something to enjoy at Wild Lights, so it's equally suitable for a date night or family outing.
Inspired by wildlife, the lanterns have been artfully rendered and placed around the zoo, including a pride of lions, orangutans, tigers, giraffes, monkeys and more. Among the most impressive lanterns on show are a 16-metre high porcelain elephant tower and a Chinese dragon that's as long as a Boeing 737-800.
Providing entertainment at the event are a host of Chinese performers doing their level best to impress visitors. There’s a wide selection of Chinese foods and warm drinks on offer at Wild Lights as well as a craft market full of ornate trinkets and artisan goods — all in one unforgettable setting.
