Spanning the 72 acres of Boston’s Franklin Park Zoo, Boston Lights: A Lantern Experience, presented by National Grid, features more than 50 large scale displays comprised of hundreds of colorful lanterns.

Guests can walk (socially distanced, of course) through a luminous 66-foot-long shark tunnel, dramatic entrance arches, radiant flower gardens, and traditional Asian lantern scenes. Glimmering butterflies, whimsical ocean scenes and a majestic 197-foot-long dragon light up the night sky. Tickets are available now, and must be purchased online in advance.
