Sure, spending time at your grandparents’ house for Easter – dining on all your favorite holiday meals and hanging out with the family – is nice, but why not step it up a notch this year? Hop into spring with some awesome activities by taking the youngsters to Bunnyville at the Detroit Zoo March 30-31, 2018.

The beloved Royal Oak zoo is the perfect place for you and your family to create memories and even create a new Easter weekend tradition.

This event offers a golden egg hunt, where your little ones can win some really neat prizes. Just keep an eye out for those shiny eggs; there are more than 100 hidden throughout the zoo on each day.

If that’s not enough to keep your little hoppers fully occupied, take them to see the musical performances by Axis Music Academy on Saturday or The Amazing Clark magic show.
