Zoo hosts egg hunt featuring brunch, Easter Bunny appearance



Children will uncover hidden Easter eggs at the Tiny Tots Egg Scrambles egg hunt Sunday afternoon at the Oklahoma City Zoo, 2101 N.E. 50th. Following the 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Easter brunch in the zoo's Canopy Restaurant featuring the Easter Bunny, the zoo will hold four egg hunts from 1 to 3 p.m. for each age group of children 5 and under. Children will find candy inside the plastic Easter eggs.

"Egg hunts are just a lot of fun when you do them," said Candice Rennels, zoo spokeswoman. "The zoo is a great place for families to spend the day together, and Easter is a family holiday."

The egg hunt is free with the regular zoo admission of $7 for adults and $4 for children 3-11. Children 2 and under are free. No reservations are required, but Sunday's hunt is held on a first-come, first-served basis.

"I don't think a lot of people realize we're open on Easter Sunday," Rennels said. "You can spend the day enjoying the zoo, being together, exploring the grounds, seeing the animals, and the kids can have fun with the egg hunt."

Reservations are required for the Easter brunch. Attending the brunch is not required to participate in the egg hunts. For more information or reservations, call 425-0262.
