BLUE SPRINGS, Miss (WTVA) - At Blue Springs Safari people can see and interact with a wide variety of animals; from exotic animals to domestic farm animals. During the holidays, people can see a lot more than that.
"It's a lot of lights to hang for sure," said the owner of Blue Springs Safari John Johnson.
Since early December people have been able to come out to feed exotic animals and enjoy a safari ride while also enjoying Christmas lights. This adds a twist to how the safari usually operates.
"It's pretty much the same experience as during the day," said Johnson. "But the only difference is we have the live activity going on plus the Christmas lights."
Animal care is the biggest priority to make the safari possible.
"It's a lot that goes into it," said Johnson. "The main thing is all the animal care, it takes the most time and putting up the lights took a good bit."
For one family, they appreciated coming out to the safari because it was one way to get out the house but also feel safe.
"We normally go to the lights in cotton land, and this is closer to home for us and it's outside so it feels safer," said Bailey Davis.
Blue Springs will continue to host their Christmas safari until December 20th.
