If you haven’t seen Wildlights at the zoo before, it’s worth it. Thanks to LED lights and programmable displays the light effects move around, like a salmon jumping down a stream or an eagle flying overhead. There’s also an open reptile house and hot food to warm up with, real reindeer, Santa, the carousel, and the chance to have a (fake) snowball fight in Zoomazium.
Scarecrow video is showing “Christmas in Connecticut” (1945) on Wed night at the WCSC in the Good Shepherd Center from 4 to 7 PM for free. The plot: A food writer who has lied about being the perfect housewife must try to cover her deception when her boss and a returning war hero invite themselves to her home for a traditional family Christmas. Popcorn and drinks provided.
If breakfast is more your thing, next Sunday from 9 AM to 12 the WCSC will be offering up snowman-shaped pancakes, french toast, ham, vegetarian sausage, and beverages ($5 Adults/$3 Kids).
It does become wearisome how heartily Wallyhood promotes the Woodland Park Zoo. Apparently the many lingering questions about how the WPZ mismanaged the transport of Chai and Bamboo, as well as USDA warnings to the zoo about improper handling of other animals at the zoo, has not dampened Wallyhood’s enthusiasm.
Has anyone asked the zoo about the impact on zoo residents of lights and crowds past usual closing hours? Or heard that not all zoo neighbors are necessarily thrilled with increased traffic and activity on winter nights?
Does the zoo give Wallyhood free passes or something? Perhaps rename: “Wallyzooed”
Please do not contribute to Woodland Park Zoo profits.
My $20 that will be spent going to Zoo Lights is nothing compared to the corporate support they receive from local companies and people. Read their annual report. Paul Allen Foundation, Microsoft, BECU, Jeff Bezos, Boeing…. they are all listed in the top donor categories. Maybe your time would be better spent trying to sway them not to support the zoo with their hundreds of thousands of dollars instead of shaming your neighbors. Speak with your own dollars and let me speak with mine how I choose.
