Eggcellent Fun at Blank Park Zoo's Eggstravaganza

Featuring egg hunts for children and the popular, golden egg hunt for adults, Eggstravaganza has become a spring tradition for families to enjoy. Where else in Central Iowa can you hunt for eggs among nature’s wildest creatures, have your photo taken with the Easter Bunny and make Zoo-themed Easter crafts? This popular event will be two Saturdays this year - April 12 and April 19.
