April 15-16 – Bunnyville at Detroit Zoo
Royal Oak, MI – One of the Detroit Zoo’s most popular events is hopping back into town with two days of “egg-citing” family fun this spring.
Presented by Meijer, Bunnyville will be hosted from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 15-16. Included with regular Zoo admission, guests of all ages can look forward to “ed-zoo-cation stations,” habitat chats, spring-themed animal enrichments, complimentary bunny ears, live entertainment and exclusive photo opportunities.
Returning this year is the fan-favorite Golden Egg Hunt, sponsored by Kinder Joy®. During the hunt, children can search for one of 150 eggs hidden throughout the Zoo each day. One egg per visitor group may be redeemed for one prize. Those who can’t wait for the festivities to begin can get an early start on the fun by taking this “egg-citing” quiz from Kinder Joy® that enters guests for a chance to win a one-year family membership to the Detroit Zoo.
Bunnyville is also dedicated to helping those in need. Those who join in on the fun are encouraged to bring canned goods for donation to Gleaners Community Food Bank, while the Detroit Zoological Society (DZS) will donate a portion of the weekend’s ticket sales directly to Gleaners.
Guests won’t want to miss out on the “egg-cellent” opportunity Bunnyville provides to celebrate the spring season while supporting the Zoo and the greater community.
“By attending Bunnyville, you are supporting your local community, and by attending events hosted by the Detroit Zoo, you are directly supporting the DZS’s mission of Celebrating and Saving Wildlife and Wild Places,” said Dr. Hayley Murphy, executive director and CEO for the DZS. “Your event admission provides support so that the DZS can continue to demonstrate extraordinary leadership in conservation, animal welfare, education and environmental sustainability.”
Alongside Meijer and Kinder Joy®, Bunnyville is also supported by Michigan Educational Credit Union, Doetsch Environmental Services and Aqua Tots.
