Lehigh Valley Zoo
October 14, 2021
|(Schnecksville, PA) – Get out of your car and into the holiday spirit when Lehigh Valley Zoo and Christmas Décor host the eighth-annual Winter Light Spectacular (WLS). The popular event is scheduled for 35 dates this season, spanning from Friday, Nov. 12, through Saturday, Jan 1. Tickets are on sale now at winterlightspectacular.com.
Located at the LV Zoo in Schnecksville, Pa., WLS is the Zoo’s largest annual fundraiser and was featured by USA Today in “Holiday light displays worth traveling for across America.”
In addition to 1.2 million lights – a total more than any other Pennsylvania attraction – WLS features classic holiday scenes, numerous family photo opportunities, multiple fire pits, hot chocolate and so many other holiday treats. There will also be live performances every night featuring popular princesses Anna & Elsa, Belle and Cinderella. Revenue from the event supports animal conservation projects and programs at the LV Zoo.
For the second consecutive year, WLS will require advanced ticket purchases and a timed-ticketing system set for two-hour sessions. This modification significantly improved the guest experience in 2020 by greatly improving traffic flow into the Zoo and positively impacting parking availability.
Ticket prices for WLS 2021 remain the same as last year: $15 for adults, $10 for children (ages 2-11) and $8 for LV Zoo Members, prior to online processing fees. Infants (ages 0-1) are free and there is no fee for parking. VIP Tickets priced at $30 for adults and $25 for children are available in limited quantities and include WLS admission as well as a 2021 Souvenir Mug and unlimited free hot chocolate ($10 value), a Smore’s kit ($4 value), a family photo voucher — for one of six different scenes ($5 value) and a chance to warm up from the cold with access to the Jingle Lodge Lounge (priceless).
A special rate for group outings of 20+ people is available for advanced purchase at $12.50 per ticket with two additional complimentary tickets per every 20 tickets purchased. In addition, a corporate rate is available for the advanced purchase of 100+ anytime tickets at $10 per ticket.
Looking for a unique holiday party for your employees, family members or friends? Cocktail parties for groups up to 50 people in the Jingle Lodge Lounge include food, soft beverages, a cozy fire, animal mingles and a place to warm up during your visit to WLS.

While guests may spot some of the Zoo’s night owls during WLS, most of the animals will be off-exhibit.
