Atlanta’s newest holiday tradition is back and better than ever. Zoo Atlanta partners with Hanart Culture to bring this one-of-a-kind light experience back to Atlanta! Vistas of illuminated wildlife and awe-inspiring sights await in a nighttime wonderland celebrating the beauty and wonder of the natural world. The lighted works of art are more stunning than ever this year, featuring many NEW lanterns and scenes!

A nighttime lantern wonderland celebrating the beauty of the natural world. Stroll the Zoo after dark to be inspired by more than 80 nature-inspired lanterns depicting some of Earth’s most amazing and charismatic flora and fauna, both real and imagined. Each lantern is made and hand-painted by Chinese artisans, therefore representing thousands of hours of work. In keeping with Zoo Atlanta’s commitment to sustainability, each lantern also features environmentally-friendly LED lights.
