Dublin Zoo's popular Wild Lights event cancelled for 2020
The last couple of years one of our Christmas traditions has been to visit Dublin Zoo for their annual Wild Lights event.
Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 related concerns the popular event will not be going ahead this year, much to the disappointment of many across the country.
Dublin Zoo released the following statement on their website earlier today:
"We are extremely grateful to our annual pass holders and visitors for your patience and support as we, like many others, navigate challenges we have never experienced before due to Covid-19.
"Over the past few months we have been working hard to safely welcome visitors to Dublin Zoo, strictly adhering to governmental health and safety directives whilst ensuring we continue to deliver the highest standard of care for the animals.
"We are sad to announce that due to the current environment, Wild Lights will not take place at Dublin Zoo this year.
"We will continue to enhance and improve the Outdoor Safari Trail experience to ensure you still enjoy visiting Dublin Zoo during the Winter months.
"We truly hope that Wild Lights will be back in 2021, bigger and better than ever!"
A crying shame.
