BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — A flashy, fun and educational event is lighting up the Birmingham Zoo.

The Birmingham Zoo is hosting Glow Wild: An Animal Lantern Celebration. Visitors will be able to learn different facts about animals from larger-than-life lanterns illuminating the zoo until Jan. 16.

Birmingham Zoo CEO and President Chris Pfefferkorn says the event is a great way to experience the zoo in a whole new light at night.

“It’s a fantastic event that brings a variety of lanterns that are placed around the zoo to showcase plants and animals seen from around the world,” Pfefferkorn said.
