This summer, enlighten yourself at IllumiZoo Summer Spectacle at the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens. This incredible event happens every Friday night from June 4–August 27.  As the animals go to sleep you're transported to another world full of whimsical trees, playful lights, colorful activities and lively music. There are so many activities that are fun for kids, and adults like launching a lantern in the zen pond,  dancing along to music, exploring the bioluminescent trees, or popping hundreds of smoke-filled bubbles. 

This event is truly like no other and is a must-see!
