Zoo Boise has long provided the backdrop for childhood photos. In addition to the main attractions--the animals--the zoo also hosts numerous events for Treasure Valley families. At Halloween, parents giddily dress up their kids in Dora the Explorer and SpongeBob costumes, cameras clicking away like paparazzi. In other words, Zoo Boise is the place to see and be seen for the toddler set.
Luckily, these activities aren't limited to fall. With each season, Zoo Boise offers new opportunities for parents and kids to not only see giraffes and penguins but to get all dressed up. On Sunday, April 17, Zoo Boise welcomes Easter with Eggstravaganza, which will be filled with plenty of egg- and bunny-inspired activities.
The Easter Egg Scramble is a hunt/race to scoop up as many of eggs as possible. Different age sets will have different times to scramble, so no need to worry about the big kids. And of course, no Easter egg hunt is complete without an appearance from the egg-bearer himself: the Easter Bunny. Also, don't forget to stop by the face-painting booth--a must for photo-hungry parents.
When the kids are sufficiently worn out, grab a stroller or rent a wagon--all those zoo animals will be waiting for you.
