Jazz Concerts at the John Ball Zoo has had the largest crowds ever this summer. I don’t know if it is the great summer weather we have had or just the good music.
Along with the music, this year a pizza oven has been added to the food venue at the concerts. There is a large copper dome that is used to bake a pizza of your choice. Hot dogs and cold drinks are available and this year a wagon selling shaved ice and snow cones is stationed there also.
It’s interesting to people watch and see those with full picnics, take out lunches, newspapers and books being read, knitting, couples dancing, kids stretched out on blankets, people playing cards and others who are strictly there for the enjoyment of the music.
For a great economical evening, these free concerts throughout the Grand Rapids area during the summer are the place to be. Take a chair or a blanket and join in the fun, 6:30 - 8:30 Monday evening.
