Los Angeles Zoo's Big Bunny's Spring Fling 2016
Fun for youngsters at the Los Angeles Zoo's Big Bunny's Spring Fling 2016 includes the opportunity to pet real bunnies, photos with “Big Bunny,” opportunities to view animals as they uncover Easter-themed paper mache eggs and baskets filled with treats, face painting, bunny ear crafts, Easter egg coloring, musical entertainment by Kiddle Karoo’s Easter Show, costumed bunny and fairy characters and a strolling stilt walker.
Adding to the excitement is a “Big Bunny's EGG-cellent Adventure” search with clues and a special treat provided by 99 Cents Only Stores awaiting youngsters at each stop. Rounding out the activities is an “EGG-ucation Station” with scent containers to give inquisitive guests a chance to see what it’s like to have a bunny's sense of smell, how to use your hands like a bunny's paws, and how to identify a bunny's emotions by the movement of its ears. All events are free with paid Zoo admission, except “Big Bunny” photos, which are available for a nominal fee.
