Blank Park Zoo’s Wild Lights Festival Will Dazzle Iowa This Spring
Some amazing new creatures will appear at Blank Park Zoo, but only after dark. The zoo’s Wild Lights Festival is happening this spring and it’s stunning.
The event is inspired by traditional Chinese lantern festivals (which date back thousands of years to the Han Dynasty and are believed to have originated with Buddhist Monks) but it has a modern twist. It combines Asian culture, wildlife conservation, and the latest technology. It’s unlike anything that’s taken place in Iowa before. You can’t truly appreciate the spectacle unless you see the animals in person, but here’s a sneak peek.
