Easter weekend will be egg-stra-special at the El Paso Zoo.

That's because the Easter Bunny will be making a hippity hoppity stoppity there on Saturday, April 16 and Sunday, April 17, and he's promising an egg-cellent adventure for children of all ages.

To make things even more egg-citing this year, the El Paso Zoo will be combining the EggstravaganZoo celebration with Party for the Planet, the zoo’s annual Earth Day event.

The two-parties-in-one is the result of Easter Sunday falling nearly two weeks later than last year and less than a week before Earth Day, observed annually on April 22.

The double celebration will mean double the fun.

According to the event post, egg-tivities include magic shows, inflatables, and an Easter candy hunt for the kids. Watch the zoo animals go on their own egg hunts for eggrichment treats. You and the kids can have some spring time fun while getting an eggucation on sustaining our Earth’s resources.

If you need more details or have questions, hit up El Paso Zoo Facebook because I'm all out of egg puns. Yeah, you might say I've eggs-austed them all. Ha! Okay, now I'm done.
