Easter Egg Hunts are so much fun and kids just love them! Here’s a list of Easter Egg Hunts and events in the Lake Norman area.
March 26th – Easter Egg Hunt at Zootastic 385 Ostwalt Amity Rd., Troutman – Park hours are 9:00 – 5:00, hunts are at 12:00 (ages 4-6), 12:45 (ages0-3) and 1:30 (ages 7-10). Here at the zoo we believe that everyone should get equal candy so we do not stuff our eggs… instead you exchange your eggs for a bag of candy after the hunt. Some of the eggs do have special prizes you can use during your visit!!
We will have a bounce house, coloring center, egg decorating center, and face painting. Pony rides will be available for a small fee, as well as our usual concessions plus hot dog and cotton candy stands! Our wagon rides will be running throughout the day, and you can purchase feed for the barnyard & wagon ride animals as well as giraffe crackers for your up close and personal time with Jiggy and Melman!! Our 15-minute encounters will be running throughout both days as well for an extra fee – they are first-come, first-serve and you sign up for them at the gift shop counter! Come see all our new babies and have a wonderful day feeding the animals. Can’t wait to see you at the zoo!
