Come join me for Zoominescence, a Festival of Light (at the Edmonton Valley Zoo) by Valley Zoo Development Society - see below for more information from their website.

Edmonton, the most northern city in North America with a population of over one million, is a world-renowned winter metropolis. Each December, Zoominescence, hosted by the Valley Zoo Development Society, stages a spectacular exhibition of artistic light installations within the unique setting of the Edmonton Valley Zoo. Our vision is to celebrate light, artistry, imagination and the strong spirit of our community in the winter. Join us for an evening of light, animals, skating, hot chocolate and fun for the whole family!

We’re ready to light up the night and show you the Edmonton Valley Zoo’s sparkle as we bring back one of Edmonton’s favourite holiday festivals!
