Every winter, Edmonton Valley Zoo hosts Zoominescence, a dazzling exhibition of artistic light installations. Celebrating light, art and imagination, the festival is considered to be one of the most popular events in Edmonton during the holiday season. Edmonton is a northern North America's city, so winter lights are necessary here to illuminate the spirit and bring home energy during the cold and dark season. Each year, the festival has a different theme, which lets artists unleash their imagination and creative ideas.
