Eggstravaganza at Blank Park Zoo! Egg hunts for the little ones and an Easter scavenger hunt through the Zoo for the older ones to make you think! An event for the whole family, Eggstravaganza offers craft activities, animal enrichment activities and a special visit from the Easter Bunny for photo opportunities.

From 9 AM–12 PM, there will be a Family Easter Party at Living History Farms. Fun for the entire family including: toy hunts, preschool Bunnyland, live animals, horse and wagon rides, and traditional games. Townsfolk will open their doors for spring visitors in the 1875 town of Walnut Hill. Free pop and popcorn for all.
