October 30 @ 6:00 pm - 10:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Sunday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until November 1, 2020


Experience the wonder of over 50 magnificent displays comprised of hundreds of beautifully crafted lanterns spanning Franklin Park Zoo’s 72 acres. The first of its kind in New England, our lantern experience will dazzle and delight guests of all ages!

We invite you to walk (socially distanced, of course) through a luminous 66-foot-long shark tunnel, dramatic entrance arches, radiant flower gardens, and traditional Asian lantern scenes. Glimmering butterflies, whimsical ocean scenes and a majestic 197-foot-long dragon will light up the night sky. Little entertainers can even make their own music on a giant step-and-play piano!

Please respect the beauty of the lights and do not touch the lanterns.
