Winter Wonderlights Installation Is Underway at the Greensboro Science Center | Kids Family


GREENSBORO, NC — Installation of one of Greensboro’s newest holiday traditions, Winter Wonderlights, began on Monday, October 18, 2021, and is expected to continue through the end of the month. The Greensboro Science Center (GSC) is working with professional lighting designers from GES Events, the world leader in holiday experiences, to create an immersive event using a combination of traditional lighting techniques and the latest in lighting technology.

Winter Wonderlights features uniquely-themed, immersive zones that will illuminate the GSC’s campus for 54 nights this holiday season. This year, the event is expanding to immerse Revolution Ridge, the GSC’s 11-acre zoo expansion, in lights, colors and sounds.

The GSC’s zoo will transform into a winter wonderland with outdoor experiences including a Treehouse Lights adventure, a stroll along Starry Night path, and a Wild Walk on the boardwalk. The zoo light experience will be complemented by indoor opportunities including a Dino Disco.

Winter Wonderlights will open on November 6, 2021 and will close on January 2, 2022. The complete schedule and additional pricing information can be found online at
