Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary switches on 'Wild Lights and Animal Sights'
Each Friday and Saturday evening through Saturday, Jan. 2, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary throws the light switch on its Wild Lights and Animal Sights holiday light display. In addition to the holiday decorations and spectacular light display, the park also offers special performances on certain nights.
On Friday, Dec. 18, the High Mountain Chordsmen and Karmann Powell perform for critters and visitors. Formed in 1974, The High Mountain Chordsmen belongs to the Barbershop Harmony Society and has performed their chorus and quartet songs throughout Yavapai County. Karmann Powell's musical style is influenced by folk, country, gospel and bluegrass. Her dynamic vocals and songs are distinctly Americana.
On Saturday, Dec. 19, the Zoo Choir sings Christmas carols while children visit with Santa Claus.
Special event admission is $3 for members, $5 for non-members and children three years and younger are free. Refreshments including hot cocoa and apple cider are available and the zoo gift shop is open.
