Tonight is the last day to visit Santa Claus at the PNC Festival of Lights at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden.

The lights display that turns the zoo into a “wild wonderland” is in its 35th year and features three million LED lights. It starts at 5 p.m., but Santa visits start at 4 p.m.

Santa on Friday delivered presents to some of the zoo animals, including tigers and other big cats, gorillas, monkeys and even a giant lizard.

Of course, Santa couldn’t forget Fiona, the zoo’s beloved baby hippo. And today, her care takers couldn’t resist sharing how she rolls as she swims with her mother, Bibi, on social media.
