For the second year in a row the Toledo Zoo’s “Lights Before Christmas” is the best in the country.

The local favorite was named ‘Best Zoo Lights’ by USA Today’s 10Best Readers’ Choice online public voting contest.

The zoo was up against 20 other zoos across the country, including those in Detroit, Indianapolis, Columbus and Cincinnati.

“We sincerely appreciate all of our supporters voting every day and encouraging others to do the same,” said Shayla Bell Moriarty, Toledo Zoo’s director of communication. “The country now knows what this area has for more than 30 years: Our Lights truly are the best.”

The “Lights Before Christmas” at the Toledo Zoo runs through Sunday, December 31, 2017.
