You and your family are invited to celebrate Easter and the arrival of spring at the Indianapolis Zoo’s first-ever Easter at the Zoo on March 31 from 9am-5pm.
At the Zoo, we’re always looking for fun new ways to celebrate with our guests. Many people don’t realize that the Zoo is open year-round, and Easter at the Zoo is the perfect opportunity for you to enjoy all the Zoo has to offer outside of the popular summer months!
Because spring is a time of new beginnings, what better time than Easter to highlight the Zoo’s newest arrivals? The Zoo has turned into a bit of a nursery with all of precious youngsters that have recently arrived. You and your family will learn all about these adorable Zoo babies, like elephant Nyah, dolphin Orin, walrus Pakak and more, during our special animal keeper chats. Zoo babies are presented by Community Health Network.
Easter just wouldn’t be Easter without an egg hunt, but this hunt features a “wild” twist like only the Zoo can do. As you walk around the Zoo and White River Gardens, make sure to look out for large animal-print eggs that are hidden throughout the grounds. If you can find at least 10 of the 19 eggs, you will win a special prize!
Has egg hunting left you famished and ready for a snack? Head over to Café on the Commons for duck and bunny-shaped Rice Krispie Treats dipped in white chocolate. And don’t forget your camera! You won’t want to miss out on memorable family photos at our special Easter-themed photo opportunity right outside of forests.
Easter is also a perfect time to check out our newest exhibit, Butterfly Kaleidoscope presented by Citizens Energy Group. Your little ones will love creating a fun butterfly craft, and your whole family will be in awe of the beauty and colors that fill Hilbert Conservatory inside White River Gardens.
The Zoo is also offering another way to celebrate the day with special savings! Print out this coupon and present it when purchasing your tickets to receive $10 admission for up to six of your friends and family on Easter Sunday!
This a deal you won’t want to pass up, so skip, hop, leap and jump your way to the Indianapolis Zoo this weekend for Easter at the Zoo!
