Tickets are now on sale for one of the most anticipated and beloved holiday events in Central Florida— Asian Lantern Festival: Into the Wild at the Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens.
The dazzling displays of Asian Lantern Festival: Into the Wild presented by Publix will return on select nights from November 18, 2022 to January 15, 2023.
The festival features all new, larger than life handcrafted lanterns lit by more than 10,000 LED lights. The event combines beautiful color, light and sound to deliver a true experience celebrating traditional Asian lantern festivals.
Guests can purchase tickets here or visit https://www.centralfloridazoo.org/lanterns. Guests are encouraged to buy early to lock in the best rates and ensure admission on popular nights. Last year, almost all nights of the event hit capacity.
The lanterns are situated on a 3/4-mile loop around the Zoo, providing a truly unique take on a holiday lights show that will leave attendees clamoring to come back again and again with friends and family. This is the third year for the festival, which started in 2019 and was not held in 2020.
“This is a cornerstone event for us at the Central Florida Zoo,” said CEO Richard E. Glover, Jr. “It’s dazzling, fun and educational. It’s a true community event, and partnering with Publix just made sense. We’re excited to have them and thrilled to offer those in Central Florida the opportunity to enjoy this spectacular event again.”
This is the first year Publix is sponsoring the event.
“We are proud to be the presenting sponsor of the Asian Lantern Festival: Into the Wild Series coming to the Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens,” said Hannah Herring, Publix media relations manager. “At Publix, we have a history of caring for our customers, associates and communities. We are excited to sponsor an event for the entire family to enjoy this holiday season.”
The festival is presented in partnership with Tianyu Arts & Culture, Inc.
Thank you to our presenting sponsor, Publix.
