Lantern Magic, Chester Zoo

AD | I have been or could be if you click on a link in this post compensated via a cash payment, gift or something else of value for writing this post. See our full disclosure policy and privacy policy for more details.

Today we went on another of our Christmas day trips to the wonderful Chester Zoo.  We love Chester Zoo and friends who had been to see the lanterns last year said it was a trip not to be missed.

Today with the rain pouring down, and the wind blowing, I was considering not bothering.

I’m really very glad we did though as the experience really was magical.  Take a look at our photos (just scroll through the images at the top of the post!), although they really don’t do it justice! For more details on the parade, see Chester Zoo’s website.

    Wow, that looks like a spectacular sight to view. I love the animal shaped lanterns specifically the tiger one, very detailed. Were the lanterns life size? Thanks for linking up with Country Kids.

    I remember doing a design of a light ornament of a giraffe before and seeing what you have here is like seeing that design come to life! Amazing place to go to that I wish we could visit as well =) #countrykids

    We went last year and it was lovely, such beautiful lanterns and a lot of effort put in to make it special for the children.
