TOLEDO - Starting Dec. 6, Thursday evenings in December at the Toledo Zoo will feature ice-carving demonstrations, local radio station broadcasts and, from 5 to 7 p.m., free 3-D glasses to make the Lights even more magical.
Starting at 5 p.m. on Dec. 6 leg lamp bobble "heads" fashioned after the famous A Christmas Story leg lamp will be given away, one per family, while supplies last.
At 7 p.m. zoo officials unveil Snowzilla, a huge artificial ice tube slide.
Snowzilla is part of this year's Winter Playland activities, which also include a giant rocking horse and a bigger-than-life snow globe. These activities are offered for a nominal fee; inclusive ride packages are available.
Visitors' Lights Before Christmas favorites continue, from the Big Tree and more than a million lights all across the Zoo, to strolling carolers and rides (weather permitting) on the Safari Railway, African Animal Carousel and Historic Carousel. The children's zoo, Nature's Neighborhood, is open, too, and brimming with kids' creative activities. And Santa will hear children's Christmas wishes in the zoo's Indoor Theatre through Dec. 23.
Lights Before Christmas hours are 3 to 8 p.m. Sunday through Thursday. Friday and Saturday hours are 3 - 9 p.m.
Admission is $12 for adults, $9 for children (2-11) and seniors (60+), and free for children under age 2.
Visitors save $1 per ticket by ordering online at toledozoo.org/lights.
