Lowry Park Zoo – Zoomination

lifepost chineselantern

One lazy afternoon, my boyfriend and I were watching tv and a commercial for this exhibit in our area came up. Never heard of it before until that day and our plan to go to the Strawberry Festival (which was about an hour away) quickly changed to seeing a Chinese Lantern Festival Display at the local zoo. We typically have date nights on the weekend even though our work schedules are conflicting most of the time. Because of this, we’re constantly looking for something to do around the area. Since we are both itching to travel, but obviously can’t go to China right now, we thought it would be fun to see this exhibit and have some sort of cultural experience in the meantime. This part of the series Life Post: Zoomination.

That was the promotional video from Lowry Park Zoo. The whole place was illuminated by gorgeous gigantic lanterns and walking through them was such a fun experience. Here are some more shots from that night.
