Holiday Lights Spectacular 2016 @ Essex Co. Turtle Back Zoo

Hi Everyone, 

Join me for this Essex County tradition...the Annual Holiday Lights Spectacular 2016 at the Essex Co. Turtle Back Zoo.  The Admission is FREE.  Please take a winter stroll with me through the Essex County Turtle Back Zoo this holiday season under the sparkling lights of over 50 winter and animal characters. Admission is Free.  Hot chocolate and s'mores will be available for purchase. 

Celebrate the season of giving by bringing donations of non-perishable food items, new toys, and gently used coats. The Zoo is collecting non-perishable food items; new, unwrapped toys; and new or gently used winter coats. Items will be donated to several organizations that provide assistance to the needy. Last year, from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day, about 16.6 tons of non-perishable food, 7,780 toys and 3,671 winter coats were collected for the less fortunate.

**We will meet at the entrance of the Zoo at 5:30PM PROMPTLY!  Please try to arrive a few minutes early, as there will be people waiting to begin out stroll together.**

As a reminder, please know that RSVPing 'yes' to joining us and then canceling last minute is 'unkind'. If you cannot make it, there is no need to post a comment; we will see you next time!

Thank you and I hope to see you there!

    It was a nice walk around the zoo decorated with so many pretty Christmas lights. It was such a good idea, Kate, for our group's get-together; something to put us in the holiday mood.

    As a reminder, the Zoo is collecting non-perishable food items; new, unwrapped toys; and new or gently used winter coats.
    Looking forward to seeing everyone later.
