CINCINNATI — The Cincinnati Zoo’s PNC Festival of Lights is still on for 2020, a zoo spokesperson announced Tuesday afternoon.

The annual event, which sees the zoo outfitted in three million twinkling seasonal lights, will run from Nov. 21, 2020-Jan. 3, 2021.

To limit the number of people at the zoo at any given time, most visitors will be required to make reservations in advance. Zoo members will have a narrow window to visit without a reservation: 7:30-8:30 p.m., Mondays through Thursdays, from Nov. 23-Dec. 17.

According to the zoo’s website, Santa Claus will be available to take pictures with visitors until Dec. 23.

The zoo has enforced mask-wearing in some areas, particularly those that place guests in close quarters, but does not specify whether pictures with Santa will require masks.
