Things To Do In Ohio: Cincinnati Zoo Festival of Lights

It's December! A beautiful time of the year. So many Christmas lights up to see and enjoy. A great place to go see them is the Cincinnati Zoo- they're amazing! Every year the zoo holds the Cincinnati Zoo Festival of Lights. The festival is huge- last year we walked through it for hours and never saw the whole thing. Over 2 million lights are used to amaze the zoo's guests.

Guests are welcomed by a huge nutcracker rhino.

There is a dancing light show on Swan Lake where the Christmas lights sparkle to Christmas music on the trees and the large Christmas tree on an island in the middle of the lake.
