We have a sneaking suspicion that we’ll be zooming down to Zoominescence just about the second it opens for the holiday season. This light-filled side of the Edmonton Valley Zoo is a classic choice for a night of fun with family, friends or that special someone.

After all, you’ll get to see the zoo transformed by dazzling light installations, ranging from ‘Aurora Animals’ to a ‘Carnivore Canopy’. With dozens of different installations stretching practically across the entire zoo, the experience is a great way to deal with those early sundown blues we all know and love.
