Elmwood Park Zoo is lighting up the holiday season with a brand new, multi-day festival that is fun for all ages. Wild Lights will feature millions of LED lights spanning the zoo’s entire 16 acres. Guests will be transported into a dazzling winter wonderland with the help of animated light installations, lit pathways, guided tours, music, and themed stops along the way. Wild Lights is generously sponsored by 1SEO, Philadelphia’s leading I.T. support and digital marketing firm. Additional support is provided by the Valley Forge Tourism and Convention Board.
