Celebrate Easter and New Beginnings at the Zoo

A celebration of spring, with all its new beginnings, awaits guests during Easter Weekend, March 26-27 at the Indianapolis Zoo.

Easter is the perfect opportunity to highlight some of the Zoo’s new arrivals, including 10 babies born within the past year. Visitors can hippity hop through the Zoo to find their favorite youngsters, like lion cubs Enzi, Mashaka and Sukari; giraffe calf Mshangao; dolphin calf Calypso and many more. Guests can also learn fun facts about these new arrivals as well as how Zookeepers care for them during special animal keeper chats.

Of course, no Easter celebration would be complete without an egg hunt, and this one will include a “wild” twist with no basket required. All guests who locate at least 10 of the 19 large animal-print egg signs hidden throughout the Zoo and White River Gardens will receive a special prize. Guests can capture fun family photos at the Easter-themed photo opportunity. And everyone will enjoy yummy spring-inspired treats available for purchase at Café on the Commons.

Easter Weekend is also the perfect time to visit White River Gardens, where a varied bouquet of beautiful blooms are springing up both outdoors and in the Hilbert Conservatory.

Easter Weekend is free for Zoo members and included with regular admission. Guests are encouraged to save money by purchasing advance tickets online at IndianapolisZoo.com.
