The Calgary Zoo came alive on March 29th and 30th with lots of activities to keep the whole family entertained. Presented by Nestle Aero Egg with Calgary's Child Magazine, the Easter Eggstravaganza ran from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.

There were several activity stations scattered around the zoo including egg-ceptionally crafty kite making and cookie decorating to sneak peaks of Global Fest and face painting inside Elephant Crossing. All children under age 12 received a treat card to satisfy their Easter chocolate cravings.

Coincidentally, the Easter festivities overlapped with the Tiger Cubs 1st Birthday on March 30 and many visitors eagerly awaited with anticipation to see them receive their birthday present.
