Friday night the zoo was open to donors for a sneak peak at Holiday Lights 2014.
There were two million lights last year and this year they did one better--
three million lights!
These are large revolving globes near the African Forest exhibit.
I didn't take as many photos as I have in the past.
It was just so lovely walking through the zoo with good friends.
There were several repeats from years past like Mr. Deer who pops up now then when you least expect him.
A trip to the gift shop is always in order.
They had lovely trees decorated with toy animals.
Last year the temperature was 89 with a high humidity.
This year the temperature was 44 and no humidity.
Over 700 had RSVPd for the event, but I'm guessing not half that number showed up.
There was no wind and it was really quite a lovely evening.
