CLEVELAND (WJW) — The Asian Lantern Festival at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo won’t be around much longer. It’s wrapping up this weekend.
The zoo that hosts the event featuring 1,000 illuminated lanterns had extended its original end date of Aug. 21 to Sept. 18.
“Already more than 100,000 guests have enjoyed this year’s Asian Lantern Festival,” said Cleveland Metroparks Chief Marketing Officer Kelly Manderfield.
The event runs from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. through Sunday for walk-through participants.
The zoo also announced plans to bring back the Wild Ride event, where people can ride their bikes through the festival of lights. That one-night event is Sept. 18 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and tickets can be found here.
Tickets to the other festival days can be found right here, and start at $22 for non-members or $19 for members. Drive-thru tickets, which are per car, cost $57 for members or $66 for non-members.
