This time of year, in these parts, everything lights up. Folks throw lights attached to green wiring around any permanent object. We love our Christmas lights. The Cincinnati Zoo does its part to enhance this tradition by hosting the PNC Festival of Lights. At dark, the zoo lights up, offers hot chocolate, roasted almonds, and even a Smore’s roast. The train whirls around, allowing for those aboard to experience a trip through a lighted winter wonderland. If you are in the area, you have until January 4th to experience this for yourself. Watch a video of our train ride.
