Best place in town to trick-or-treat!
The family Halloween event where you can dress up – dress
down and clown around! Trick-or-treating! Special kids activities! Animals get
pumpkins! Entertainment! And….there’s even some big, big, surprises
All five days of BOO will be packed with entertainment, trick-or-treat stations, make-and-take crafts and animal activities, but each day will be different from treat stations to entertainment. Imagine your child dressed-up like a lion, in front of a real lion. It’s those amazing and sometimes hilarious photo opportunities that just pop up at John Ball Zoo’s BOO.
ZOO GOES BOO! is budget-friendly at $7.00 for everyone. Members only $3.00. Kids 2 and under are always totally free!
Be sure to pick up your $1 off coupon from any participating Grand Rapids Meijer stores (general admission only)
