Posted at 4:51 AM, Dec 02, 2017

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. --- Today is the last day for the season at John Ball Zoo so organizers are holding a Christmas celebration for the Animals.

It's a free event with Santa, his reindeer, and 'aquatic elves' running from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

You will be able to see ice shavings and even a marching band.

Guests will learn about the psychological well-being of the animals. In the past, the zoo has asked for animal enrichment items in return for free admission, however this year is different.

The zoo is asking this year for a cash donation or by check or card.

You can also make a donation on the zoo's website or choose items from its Amazon wish list.
