Detroit Zoo's Holiday Cheer at Wild Lights

Please buy your Tickets at https://store.detroitzoo.org/webstore/shop/ViewItems.aspx?CG=OTS&C=HC before they are sold out. 

We're going to try something a little different this week. Instead of getting drunk at a bar, why not get drunk with some cute animals at the Zoo? 

Raise a glass of holiday cheer at the Detroit Zoo's Holiday Cheer at Wild Lights.

 

The 21-and-over event will allow guests to enjoy specialty holiday drinks while viewing the Zoo’s spectacular holiday light display. More than Two Million twinkling LED lights will brighten the evening sky and illuminate buildings, animal sculptures and trees on a half-mile trail through the front of the Zoo.
Holiday 

Cheer tickets are $40 and include Detroit Zoo admission, parking, admission to the Wild Adventure Zone’s 4-D Theater to see the “The Polar Express 4-D Experience” and three specialty holiday beverages, wine or beer. Additional drink tickets will be available for purchase.

Designated Driver (DD) tickets are available up to the night of the event for $25 and include Zoo admission, parking and unlimited soft drinks and hot cocoa. DD ticket holders are not permitted to consume alcohol at the event. Designated drivers must be 21 and over to enter the event.

We will all meet up at the front entrance between 6:45 and 7:00

Tickets can be bought at http://www.detroitzoo.org/wild-lights/holiday-cheer .

    Just to confirm. We will meetup at the front entrance between 6:45 and 7:00. If you arrive early, go have few drinks and then come and join us. If you arrive late, you can call my cell[masked]-0066.

    Regardless of weather the event will go out, the Zoo will have warming stations etc.
