Here come the holidays! This is when our minds, hearts, and eyes are looking for the very best and brightest Christmas displays in Ohio. Arguably, the most amazing light displays and holiday happenings are found at the Toledo Zoo & Aquarium that really delivers that holiday wow factor. So without any further ado, let's get that hot chocolate brewing, bust out the candy canes, pack up those kiddos into the car, or perhaps go out on a great date night to view these dazzling displays.

It's all Happening at the Zoo!

"Someone once told me it's all happening at the zoo. I do believe it, I do believe it's true!" Forgive the ancient song reference (and a possible earworm for more seasoned music fans) from the famous folk-singing duo of Simon and Garfunkel. The performance of this song made this hit a classic and helped to support zoos all across the country and around the world. Currently and in the past, the Toledo Zoo & Aquarium does a phenomenal job of lighting up their park with displays adorning their prestigious park happening after hours.

Running from November 17th through December 31st in 2023, the Lights Before Christmas display at this popular, local attraction is a real dazzler and a totally stunning experience for all ages to enjoy. With more than a million lights, hundreds of animal images to enjoy, spectacular ice carvings, and demonstrations on this unique art form are available on Thursday evenings.

Go Trendy, Go Traditional, and Go Shopping!

If one was to search for the "best holiday light displays in Toledo," most users will find this location at the top of many lists or at the very least included in the top three. That's because visitors will enjoy traditional roaming Christmas carolers, sweet holiday treats, indoor visits with Santa, and so much more.

Looking to do some spectacular holiday shopping? Head over to the North Star Trading Post Gift Shop for an excellent selection of presents for friends, family, and other loved ones. This particular, popular attraction is a real Winter Wonderland likely to be worthy of several visits and has become a family tradition for many in this area.

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree!

Don't forget to check out the magnificent and amazing spruce tree located behind the zoo's Conservatory. Dazzlingly decorated with more than 32,000 lights, this holiday tree boasts more lights than the famous Christmas tree featured annually displayed in New York City's Rockefeller Center. Imagine being able to see, enjoy, and experience a Christmas tree just as grand (if not grander) than the infamous one showcased in the Big Apple without having to leave Ohio.
