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 winter 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, Zoominescence will illuminate and bring life outdoors in our winter city with this years theme being "60 Years of Education, Conservation and Getting Closer.
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 festivals vision is to celebrate light, artistry, imagination and the strong spirit of our community in the winter. With a skating rink, a bonfire, ice slide, fire dancers, light exhibits and ten artist installations, what could be a better outing in the cool month of December? Starting December 1st and running every weekend unil December 30th. Special bonus opening on December 26. Come join us for fourteen days of fun, entertainment, lights and activities!
