The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens will launch a new paper lantern festival starting in March, it was announced Thursday.

The Glow in the Park festival will run nightly from March 27 through April 29 at the zoo from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. nightly and will feature animal and nature-scape paper lantern creations.

The festival was produced in partnership with Tianyu Arts and Culture Inc., which produces similar festivals for zoos across the country.

“Glow in the Park will be unlike anything we’ve ever had at The Living Desert and different from other light festivals in Southern California,” said Allen Monroe, president of The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens.

“Guests will be able to watch the desert come alive with spectacular installations that are sure to delight those of all ages. We*re excited for everyone to see us in a whole new light.”
