Lights in Lincoln Park, Manitowoc« Back to Events
The Lincoln Park Zoo is a terrific free zoo in the “Coolest Coast” city of Manitowoc. Every holiday season, Lights In Lincoln Park dazzles with a “twinkly bright drive-thru wonder” from November 24th through December 9th on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, and then resuming for EVERY evening from December 14th through the 28th, 2023.
Along with beautiful lights on trees, trellises and more, enjoy over 70 wild animal light displays, many with animated characters. Among them is animated elephant, a wood duck, a standing polar bear, an animated wolf, and whispering pine tree… just to give you an idea of what you’ll get to enjoy. This is the 10th annual Lights in Lincoln Park and they manage to add new features every year.
