Dates: 4/4/2015, 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Rabbit Romp features candy egg hunts every 10-15 minutes between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Children ages 3 to 10 are invited to hunt for compostable “plastic” eggs, candy and prizes. Toddlers 2 and under can participate in a candy hunt organized especially for them at the classrooms by Bear Walk Café. Parents are not allowed in most hunts, but accommodations will be made for families requiring assistance. Guests should bring their own baskets to collect the eggs and candy.

Returning this year: because we care about the natural world, all of our “plastic” eggs are really “Eco Eggs,” and are fully compostable. All of the candy inside is organic and palm oil free.

Rabbit Romp festivities also include pettable bunnies at the Family Farm, bunny crafts, games and photo opportunities.

Cost: free with zoo admission.
