The kiddos are itching to get out of the house and have a fun time for Easter. The Amarillo Zoo has the solution for that.

They will be hosting their Easter EGG-citement event on Saturday. Come one and come all but be ready to have a blast.

They will open the gates at 9:30 am and will have a hopping good time until 3 pm. There will be plenty of fun and eggs for everyone. Oh and don't forget the animals! I mean it is a zoo after all!

For the low price of $5 per person you can give the kiddos a day they won't soon forget. There will be many treat stations to get their Easter eggs full of candy. Not just candy but there will be costumed characters at each location.

Of course what Easter Egg hunt would be complete without a visit from the Easter Bunny? Of course he will be there. So have your phone ready to capture those memories.

If that doesn't all tire you out there will, of course, be a lot of eggy-games and crafts to round out your day. You will also be able to tour the zoo and see the world's largest egg courtesy of a giant elephant bird. That sure will be a sight to see.

It will be a great day at the Amarillo Zoo. Oh and don't think the animals won't be enjoying themselves as well. They will have their own Easter baskets filled with special treats. I mean you can't have ALL the fun!

So make your plans to be at the Amarillo Zoo this Saturday. They are located inside Thompson Park!
