GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (ABC 4)- A beloved event for kids, adults and families returned to John Ball Zoo earlier this month, and there’s still time to enjoy it!

“Zoo Goes Boo” is underway and bigger than ever, and the community is invited to roam through epic Halloween decorations, thirteen treat stations and explore animal exhibits located throughout the zoo. Also in store are fire performers, themed music, magicians, villains, jugglers, stilt walkers, trick-or-treating and more. 

Maranda recently met with Mariah Malone and Nick Milbratz for a rundown of all the fun details!
