Toledo Zoo’s Lights Before Christmas presented by KeyBank has become “the” holiday tradition in Toledo and Northwest Ohio. 

As always, this year’s illumination extravaganza will kick off with the lighting of the award-winning “Big Tree” – an 85-foot Norway spruce decorated with more than 35,000 energy-saving LED bulbs. The ceremony is expected to start between 5:30 and 6:15 p.m.
Those who can’t make it out to the Zoo for opening night, can tune in to WTOL 11 and FOX 36 as their evening news teams will be broadcasting live from the Zoo from 5-7 p.m.

For the first time since its founding in 1901, the Toledo Museum of Art (TMA) will present a special exhibition of Late Roman artwork, focusing on the period from the second century B.C. to the seventh century.

The majority of the approximately 30 masterpieces – glittering gold and silver, spectacular oversized carved garnets and rubies and dazzling rings and necklaces – have never been displayed in a museum.

“Glorious Splendor: Treasures of Early Christian Art” will be on view exclusively at TMA from Nov. 18 through Feb. 18, 2018.
