It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Santa Claus is coming to town to celebrate an even brighter holiday at the Wild Animal Park in Chittenango.

The animal park has been transformed into a Winter Wonderland of Lights, with a lot more lights this year.

We have actually doubled and almost tripled the number of lights and decorations. We are always looking to improve and dreaming big at The Wild.

Take a magical walk through The Wild Animal Park and make holiday memories with the whole family. Be sure to check out the singing reindeer and penguins. The train ride, full petting zoo, parakeet feeding, and bounce houses will all be open during the Winter Wonderland of Lights.

"Animals that can handle the cold will be out," explains park owner Jeff Taylor. "Pictures with Santa will also be available every night through Christmas."
