Egg Day

Hop to it and head over to the Milwaukee County Zoo the day before Easter for some “egg-straordinary” fun!  On Saturday, April 15, join in the Egg Day festivities kicking off at 9 a.m.!  Some highlights include:

  • Peck Welcome Center – 9:30 a.m. / 10:30 a.m. / Noon
    Watch as our expert “Bubblologist” creates amazing works of art during the 
    “Bubble Wonders” Show!  Witness the “the bubble caterpillar,” “bubble volcano”
    and the popular “bubble merry-go-round!”
  • Lake Evinrude Deck – 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
    Kids 8 and under can get some springtime eggs-ercise while searching for brightly-colored Easter eggs.  Eggs can later be redeemed for sweet treats!
  • Egg DayEaster Parade 2 p.m.
    Meet at the Northwestern Mutual Family Farm and take part in a festive march through the Zoo alongside the master of ceremonies and the Easter Bunny!
  • Stearns Family Apes of Africa
    Amongst the Great Apes, get your face painted with a bunny nose and whiskers – so you can look like the most famous Bunny of all!
  • Primates of the World
    Design your very own bunny ears and show them off in our Easter parade!
  • I Spy…Easter Eggs!
    From aboard our famous North Shore Bank Safari Train, see if you can spot dozens of Easter eggs hidden on the wooded route winding through the Zoo.
  • Egg DayAnimal Enrichment Activities
    Our animals are joining in the Egg Day fun too, as they enjoy Easter-related enrichment items in their habitats.  Enrichment keeps the animals active and healthy, allowing them to express behaviors similar to those they would in the wild. Tigers, elephants and gorilla are a few of the animals receiving these special treats.

Zoo admission is $14.25 for adults, $11.25 for children (3 to 12 years), free for children 2 and under, and $13.25 for senior citizens (60 and older).  Milwaukee County residents with I.D. receive $1.75 off regular Zoo admission.  Parking is $12.  Zoological Society membership is valid for Egg Day.
