On tap are games with prizes, face painting, snow cones, the Easter Bunny, bounce house and, of course, egg hunting. Hunts start at 11:30 a.m. for the youngest children and continue until the final group starts searching at 1:30 p.m. The event is open to children under six years of age up to 13.

After the Easter Egg hunts, children and their families are invited to view the big cats, tigers, lions, leopards, cheetahs, cougars and more.
