The 36th Annual PNC Festival of Lights will once again transform the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden into a "Wild Wonderland". Bask in the glow of 3 million LED lights, watch a Mad Cap black-light puppet show, ride the BB&T Toyland Express, search for fairies in Fairy Land, marvel at the spectacular Swan Lake show and enjoy seasonal treats like hot chocolate and s'mores.  Be sure to visit Santa Claus each day starting at 4 p.m., an hour before the rest of the festival festivities begin.  $$
