WILLIAMS - Can't get enough Christmas in the Quad Cities? Take the short drive to Williams, where Bearizona presents its version of zoo lights, Wild Wonderland.
The show, featuring 100,000 lights dancing in tune to traditional Christmas music, runs from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings through Dec. 13, then every evening Dec. 14-27. It will be closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas. Shows begin every 30 minutes.
The drive-through portion of the park is closed during Wild Wonderland. Admission to this event is a separate charge from regular park admission and is $10 for anyone 4 and older.
Mrs. Claus visits from the North Pole for a special story time at 6 and 7 p.m. each night. There are plenty of photo opportunities, and coffee, cocoa and Christmas goodies are available for purchase in the new 12,000-square-gift shop.
