JoJo's Birthday Party

Join the party for the thirtieth birthday of silverback gorilla JoJo on April 30 at 2 p.m. (It’s also Tabibu’s big day, though she’s only turning 18.) The zoo will celebrate the occasion at Regenstein Center for African Apes by treating the gorilla troop to a tiered piñata birthday cake filled with gorilla favorites—fruits and veggies. As past parties have shown, the primates delight in their cake as much as the guests enjoy watching. Bring your camera and your best birthday wishes to this fun, free event.
