Coal Valley, IL – November 23, 2011 – Join Niabi Zoo as it is transformed into an illuminated winter wonderland for an all-new experience, Zoo Lights. December 12th-17th, Niabi Zoo will be open for guests to enjoy the zoo as they never have before.

Families will be able to enjoy Niabi Zoo during the evening hours from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm. The zoo grounds will be decked out in holiday-themed lights and decorations to ring in the holiday season like only Niabi Zoo can do.

Niabi Zoo Director Mark Ryan says the event will be a great time for the Quad Cities to celebrate the season. “We’ve wrapped up another great season at Niabi Zoo,” says Ryan, “but before we leave 2011 behind, we’re inviting everyone back out to the zoo one for one last week.” Ryan says that even though Niabi Zoo has never attempted an event like this before, he hopes it will provide families with a break from their hectic holiday schedules. “This time of year can get so busy for everyone, so hopefully they will be able to take a couple hours to enjoy a stroll around Niabi Zoo and take in the sights of the zoo grounds decorated with all sorts of lights and decorations.”

Admission will be $4 per person. Free parking is available at the zoo.
