An animal in winter at John Ball Zoo

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) John Ball Zoo will re-open for one day this season to celebrate Christmas with the animals! The event is on Saturday, December 6 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Come see Santa and his reindeer, animal demonstrations, and watch the animals get gifts and treats. The event is free with the donation of an animal enrichment item. View the zoo’s wish list here.

While you’re at the zoo, check some items off your Christmas list with a stop at the Gifts of the Wild gift shop. There is something for every animal lover from stuffed animals of ever size to ornaments, t-shirts, and authentic items from Africa. All proceeds from the gift shop go right back to John Ball Zoo.
