TOLEDO (WTOL) - The weekends before Christmas are dwindling, but this weekend’s forecast is a fairly merry and bright one for attending the Lights Before Christmas at the Toledo Zoo.

Meteorologist Chris Vickers notes we’ll see mostly cloudy skies with some sunshine into the afternoon Friday. Highs will be in the middle and possibly upper 40s.

A few rain showers, especially south of Toledo, are expected on Saturday. A cooler and brisk breeze will keep highs closer to 40 degrees.

Partly sunny skies will return on Sunday with highs in the middle 40s.

Lights Before Christmas runs through Dec. 31. Hours are Sunday through Thursday, 3-8 p.m.; and Friday through Saturday, 3-9 p.m. The zoo remains open for one additional hour after gates close to allow guests to complete their visit. The Lights Before Christmas ticket price applies all day.

Zoo members enjoy unlimited visits Monday through Thursday, and have one free weekend visit.

Non-members will pay $18 per adult and $15 per child or senior citizen. Purchasing tickets online will save you $1 each.

In addition to the award-winning lights, be sure to check out the rides and activities, “Scenes of Wonder” light show projected on the Carnivore Cafe, and holiday carolers throughout the zoo.

On Friday night, music was provided by Napoleon H.S. Jazz at 6 p.m., and the Otsego H.S. Swing Choir at 6 p.m. Saturday, Plymouth Christian Academy will sing at 7 p.m. and on Sunday, the Eastwood H.S. Christmas Ensemble will perform at 5:30 p.m. and Sweet Harmony sings at 6:30 p.m.
