As I was driving into work today, I noticed the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium is hanging lights in preparation for the upcoming Wildlights! holiday celebration. Officials there are enthused about the event being brighter and "greener" than ever with the switchover of half of the three million lights to energy saving LED lights. Additionally, this year's event brings a new animated light show (around the pond) that will run every 30 minutes.
So ... I was thinking maybe we should help them brainstorm some appropriate song ideas for their new light show sound track. We expect to hear Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer and I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas. But, what else? The Chipmunk Song? How about God Rest Ye Merry Manatees or Grandma Got Run Over by a Markhor?
Okay, we're brainstorming here. (Meaning every idea counts.) What's yours? Submit your best song suggestion to this blog by Wildlights! opening day (Nov. 21) and you could win two passes to the event!
