You know this next month and a bit is going to absolutely fly. You have to decorate, shop, travel, cook, clean and the BOOM it’s alllll over. While you’re making your schedule, you need to pencil in a visit with your family to the Edmonton Valley Zoo!! They’re bringing back “Zoominescence” December 1st and it’s going to be incredible.
“In a big city, light is life. Light is inviting. Light is vibrant. It reflects energy. It can breathe life into a place, or it can take your breath away. Edmonton, the most northern city in North America with a population of over one million, is a world renowned wither metropolis with the proud title of Festival City. People are eager to enjoy activities in their fine city year-round. Welcome to our plan to spread that light and illuminate the spirit of Edmonton. Through partnership with the Edmonton Valley Zoo, the Zoominescence will illuminate and bring life outdoors in our winter city with this year’s theme being “Canada 150 & Our Energy Future”.
This December, Zoominescence, hosted by the Valley Zoo Development Society, will stage a spectacular exhibition of artistic light installations within the unique setting of the Edmonton Valley Zoo. The festival’s vision is to celebrate light, artistry, imagination and the strong spirit of our community in the winter. With a skating rink, ice slide, fire dancers, ice, light exhibits and 11 artist installations what could be a better outing in the cool month of December? Starting December 1st and running every weekend unil December 31st. With special bonus opening on December 26, 27 and 28. Come join us for eighteen days of fun, entertainment, lights and activities!”
