MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee County Zoo has announced its kick-off to the holiday season with a special light festival that the zoo claims will be "bigger and brighter than ever."

"Wild Lights" will see the zoo transformed into a family-friendly illuminated destination of hundreds of thousands of lights throughout the forests and pathways as guests stroll along a one-mile path filled with animal-themed light displays.

"Cheers! Wild Lights" will offer the same holiday-focused light display at the zoo, with the addition of local bands, ice carving demonstrations, specialty foods and adult beverages being offered.

Jennifer Diliberti-Shea of the Milwaukee County Zoo joined us on Wednesday, Nov. 23 to offer details.

More information can be found by visiting MilwaukeeZoo.org.
