We are incredibly delighted to have first-time cooperation with Kansas City Zoo, located in Kansas City, MO. We are in the process of producing the largest lights exhibition in all of the Midwest regions, and after analyzing the design, this might even be the largest in the USA. ‘The GloWild lantern festival will be the largest and first of its kind in the Midwest and will feature handmade lighted sculptures of animals, local landmarks, flowers, and cultural symbols’ – Fox4 KC.
We feel very confident that the feedback about this installation will exceed everyone’s expectations. Kansas City, MO, has never seen anything like this, and we are going ‘all out for this installation. Our design is incredible, and we are also including performances, handcraft vendors, a retail marketplace, and much more in order to make this an unforgettable experience.
