Oregon Zoo will welcome spring with egg hunts, activities, pettable bunnies

Eggs-citing times are in store Saturday, April 4, when the Oregon Zoo hosts its annual Rabbit Romp, a celebration of spring for all ages. Rabbit Romp is sponsored in part by the Oregon College Savings Plan and is free with regular zoo admission.

Rabbit Romp features candy egg hunts every 20 minutes between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Children ages 3 to 10 are divided into age groups and invited to hunt for eggs filled with candy and prizes. Toddlers 2 and under can participate in a candy hunt organized especially for them. Parents are not allowed in most hunts, but a special "family hunt" area is available for kids with special needs, or families wanting to do the hunt all together. Guests should bring their own baskets to collect the eggs, candy & prizes.

Rabbit Romp festivities also include pettable bunnies at the Family Farm, bunny crafts, games and photo opportunities.
