Zoominescence, A Festival of Light (at the Edmonton Valley Zoo)
Thu, 8 Dec 2016, 5:00 PM – Fri, 23 Dec 2016, 9:00 PM MST
In a big city, light is life. Light is inviting. Light is vibrant. It reflects energy. It can breathe life into a place, or it can take your breath away. Edmonton, the most northern city in North America with a population of over one million, is a world renowned wither metropolis with the proud title of Festival City. People are eager to enjoy activities in their fine city year-round. Welcome to our plan to spread that light and illuminate the spirit of Edmonton. Through partnership with the Edmonton Valley Zoo, the Zoominescence will illuminate and bring life outdoors in our winter city with this year’s theme being “Lighten up YEG”.
This December, Zoominescence, hosted by the Valley Zoo Development Society, will stage a spectacular exhibition of artistic light installations within the unique setting of the Edmonton Valley Zoo. The festival’s vision is to celebrate light, artistry, imagination and the strong spirit of our community in the winter. With a skating rink, maze, fire dancers, nightly DJ's, ice, light exhibits and 10 artist installations what could be a better outing in the cool month of December? It will run for a 10 day period beginning on December 9th and running through December 18th. Come join us for ten days of fun, entertainment, lights and activities!
