Back To The Zoo

The Louisville Zoo reopened in June after being closed since March. To make up for all that lost time you could have been gawking at exotic animals, here are two events to attend.

Wild Lights Asian Lantern Festival (Through Aug. 28)  |  Louisville Zoo
1100 Trevilian Way  |  |  Prices vary  |  7:30-9:30 p.m.

A new animal has been introduced to the Louisville Zoo: a 130-foot long, light-up water dragon. And she’s brought with her 65 “jaw-dropping” lantern displays, a walk-through “shark tunnel,” LED lily pads and over 2,000 handmade silk lanterns for the Wild Lights Asian Lantern Festival. 

Earth Day Celebration (July 26)  |  Louisville Zoo  |
$8.25  |  10 a.m.-5 p.m.

Wait, wasn’t Earth Day in April? Well, like almost everything, the Louisville Zoo was closed in April. So, instead, its holding its Earth Day celebration now. And really, every day is Earth Day at a zoo. In commemoration, admission is $8.25 instead of over $11

Wednesday, July 29-Aug. 28
