TUCSON, Ariz. — A colossal display of Chinese lanterns will light up Reid Park Zoo beginning next month!

The 2020 Asian Lantern Festival features scenes from Asian folklore to fantasy creatures that are larger-than-life.

"As they wander the Zoo’s lush pathways, guests can explore underseas worlds, will come face to face with towering dinosaurs and can pound the giant Asian drums or dance on the interactive step pad to create their own sights and sounds," The City of Tucson said about the event.

The event runs from Feb. 13-March 30. Tickets are $18 for adults and $16 for children ages 2-14.
