Saturday: Easter Egg-citement at Amarillo Zoo

A variety of animal themed Easter events will be available for visitors this Saturday

Hop on over to the Amarillo Zoo for our seventh annual Easter EGG-citement event. This annual event offers kids a chance to explore the Zoo and receive candy-filled Easter eggs from one of our costumed characters. Share the day with the costumed characters like a parrot, kangaroo, hummingbird, tiger and other spring time animal friends. Plus, take a photo with our guest of honor- the Easter Bunny! Plant a carrot seed garden to take home to plant in your backyard garden, pet one of our cuddly bunnies at Bunnyville. Other event highlights include:
Bunny Trail EggVenture - Jump, hop and bounce from one “eggsploration station” to the next at this spring event! Bunny Trail EggVenture is filled with all kinds of fun! Pick up a special “passport” to embark on a quest to gather colorful candy-filled eggs from one of many costumed characters. Safari-goers will get their passport punched at each egg station as they discover fun facts about our animals. At the end of the search, kids can trade in their passports for a surprise. There are no traditional Easter egg hunts at Easter EGG-citment.
