Central Ohio’s favorite zookeeper will entertain his fans at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium this weekend.

Jack Hanna’s Fall Fest will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 23-24. The event includes special appearances by the zoo’s director emeritus as well as seasonal activities and entertainment.

Highlights include: 

Hanna will appear in two shows daily, at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., on the Animals on Safari Stage. Conservation Lake will showcase vendors offering pottery, pumpkin carving, broom making and other trades. Animals will get to bob for apples as a treat. A character parade featuring zoo mascots will roll through the grounds four times daily.
