Saturday April 15th, the Louisiana Purchase Gardens and Zoo will be holding its Easter Eggstravaganza. Gates open at 10:00 a.m. that morning, and the Easter egg hunts start at 11:00 a.m.

The Easter Eggstravaganza is one of the zoo's biggest events of the year. Director of the zoo, Joe Clawson, shares that, "The event is to raise money, but it is also to share with the community what's been going on at the zoo. We're really proud of what the staff has accomplished."
