If you are looking for an activity to do on these fall evenings, why not head to the John Ball Zoo and check out IllumiZoo!

I had the opportunity to check this out over the weekend and was so impressed by the transformation of the zoo after dark. You take a stroll through the zoo and experience and light and sound show. You won't really see any animals during your visit, but the sights and sounds are so worth the visit.

The John Ball Zoo website describes the experience this way: "At John Ball Zoo a tale of illuminating connections between wildlife and wild places is ready to be told. The illuminating tale of how we are all connected to each other, to the land, the water, the air, the trees, and all animals big and small with the power to make a positive change in our world. You are invited to take a journey through IllumiZoo – A Glenlore Tale at John Ball Zoo."

Visitors walk along a one-mile outdoor nighttime journey through Zoo. This magical tale told through a display of colors and sounds will wind through the lower and upper realms of the Zoo and is the combined imaginations of Bluewater Technologies of Southfield, Michigan, and John Ball Zoo.

Although parts of the walk have a Halloween theme to them,  it is not a haunted trail experience. This is a great adventure for all ages.

The display will run through Sunday, November 15th, 2020. The display is open Tuesday through Sundays from 7 pm to 11 pm. It is open until midnight on Friday and Saturday nights.

Guests are highly encouraged to reserve their timed tickets ahead of time to guarantee their preferred date and time to experience IllumiZoo – A Glenlore Tale.

For pricing and to reserve your spot, here is the John Ball Zoo website.

Plus, during your visit, you can still see the BrickLive Animal Paradise exhibit.
