The Columbus Zoo & Aquarium Wildlights program is an annual holiday destination.

But this year on the weekend before Christmas, it’s being forced to close up for several days.

According to a statement from the Columbus Zoo, the Powell-based attraction is temporarily closing from Dec. 23-26.

“Due to severe weather expected in our region which will bring below freezing temperatures with wind and snow, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium will close Friday, December 23 and Saturday, December 24,” the statement reads. “A Sunday, December 25 closure was already scheduled for the Christmas holiday.”

We know Wildlights is an annual tradition for many families, but the safety and wellbeing of the animals, our guests, and staff is our top priority.  

We plan to reopen on Monday, December 26, at 10:00 a.m. and will keep you updated on our website and social media pages.”

The Columbus Zoo & Aquarium and Zoolights will be open today.
