Join us in congratulating all of our new parents at John Ball Zoo during your visit on Tuesday, August 18th! We’ve welcomed so many babies at the Zoo in the past six months that we wanted to get YOU involved to celebrate and support our new moms and dads.  

There are so many ways for guests to have fun while making an impact during their visit. Visit all corners of John Ball Zoo while playing Baby Shower BINGO! You will receive your BINGO card upon entering the zoo, play along, and when you get a BINGO you can redeem your BINGO card at any of our food and beverage or gift shop locations for 15% off your purchase on August 18th (offer valid on one purchase only).

Hear from John Ball Zoo education and animal care staff throughout the day about our growing families as you visit their habitats.

$1 of every souvenir cup purchased on August 18th at our food and beverage locations supports the care and conservation of our animals!
