Dublin Zoo's Wild Lights will return this year with the theme 'The Magic of Life'.
The event will highlight the importance of biodiversity through colourful lanterns.
Visitors will see lanterns showcasing some of the most fascinating plant and animal communities and ecosystems on our planet.
The zoo said this years' display will be taken off the energy grid and will be powered by hydrotreated vegetable oil, derived from 100% renewable raw materials.
Visitors will travel along a one-way trail past illuminated woodland scenes, before encountering pollinators such as giant bees and beehives.
They will then see some of nature's most fascinating transformations - like the metamorphosis of a caterpillar into a butterfly, as well as the skilled co-operation of an ant colony.
Some of the most minute creatures in the world will be blown up to gigantic scale.
Dr Christoph Schwitzer is director of Dublin Zoo.
He said: "The award-winning event will highlight the importance of the world's plant and animal kingdoms, something that is at the heart of everything we do here.
"We are excited to welcome all visitors this winter to enjoy the magical journey with us and we hope this year’s theme will inspire a passion for nature and a willingness to help."
Wild Lights will open to the public on Friday October 28th until Monday January 9th 2023.
Tickets will cost €23 for adults and €19 for children.
However annual pass holders can avail of a special rate, as can students and OAPs.
Children under the age of three go free but will still need a pre-booked ticket.
