Asian Highlands, the new state-of-the-art destination at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo, is now open to the public. The immersive addition is home to Amur and snow leopards, red panda and a new species to the Zoo, takin.
At the ribbon cutting ceremony, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo announced Asian Lantern Festival presented by Cleveland Clinic Children’s that will light up the zoo for five weeks this summer. The limited engagement will take place evenings, Thursday thru Sunday from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m., from July 19 to August 19, 2018.
Guests will enjoy more than two dozen large-scale, colorful lantern installations placed throughout the zoo that will illuminate starting at dusk. Guests will be immersed in Asian culture, dining on Asian inspired cuisine, watching Asian performers on the Fifth Third Bank stage, and shopping an authentic marketplace sponsored by T-Mobile. Tickets for the Asian Lantern Festival are on sale now and can be purchased in advance online at futureforwildlife.org/lanterns.
