Festival of Lights

The lovely Robin and I accompanied our kids and grandkids, Aubrey, Kevin, Calleigh, and Ryder to the Festival of Lights at the Cincinnati Zoo this evening.

As always, the decorations and displays were just wonderful. Kevin pointed out after a half hour or more that there was no lighting necessary other than the decorative displays; the entire grounds were illuminated by the thousands of lights all around.

The kids were angels, and the weather was well nigh perfect: cool, clear, and pleasant. Though it had rained earlier in the day, there was no need for umbrellas or raincoats the whole time we were there.

And, though the kids shied from Santa, Frosty, and the Gingerbread Man, we did pay a visit to Santa's reindeer...obviously resting in anticipation of the big night.

This is the thirtieth year for the Festival of Lights, and it is a wonderful way to spend the evening. It is open through January 1 (though not on December 24 or 25), nightly from 5 to 9 and Fridays and Saturdays 5-10.
