Egg Day at the Milwaukee County Zoo is happening this Saturday, March 31, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Watch an expert bubblologist at the Peck Welcome Center, participate in a Bunny Egg Hunt with sweet treats, and see the Easter Parade at 2:00 p.m. The parade takes place at the Northwestern Mutual family Farm and will include the Easter Bunny and a cast of characters.
At the Apes of Africa exhibit, you can get your face painted like a bunny, and in the Primates of the World exhibits you can design your very own bunny ears.
Ride the North Shore Bank Safari Train and see if you can spot the dozens of Easter eggs hidden throughout the forested route.
The animals will enjoy Easter-related enrichment items in their exhibits, keeping them active and healthy and allowing them to express behaviors similar to those they would in the wild. Orangutans, rhinos and prairie dogs are a few of the animals receiving these special treats.
New this year, get a free Carousel ride during Egg Day with a Woodman’s receipt showing the purchase of any Nesquik product.
Zoo admission is $11.75 for adults, $8.75 for children (3 to 12 years), free for children 2 and under, and $10.25 for senior citizens (60 and older). Milwaukee County residents with I.D. receive $1.75 off regular Zoo admission. Parking is $12. Zoological Society membership is valid for Egg Day.
