GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOTV) – Share some holiday spirit with furry and feathered friends at John Ball Zoo’s annual Christmas for the Animals. Maranda had a couple friends from the zoo visit, including a sinaloan milk snake, to talk about this fun event! Families have the opportunity to come out and meet Santa and some zoo animals, all while giving back to a great cause.Bring a gift for the animals and get Zoo admission and a visit with Santa and his reindeer, all FREE as a thank you! This event is fun for the whole family whether they are taking a moment with Santa, or watching the animals enjoy their “presents”.
