Easter Egg Hunt at the Zoo

Easter Egg Hunt at the Zoo

Posted: Updated:

North Dakota is one of the few states where kids get to hunt for their Easter Eggs in the snow.

Hundreds of children ages zero to 12 got together at Minot's Roosevelt Zoo today for a big outdoor Easter egg hunt.
This annual event drew a larger crowd than usual this year, even though it doesn't exactly feel like spring outside.

(Jennifer Fry, Education Coordinator at Roosevelt Zoo) Kids really just enjoy it. Its a chance to get out, you know everyone has a little bit of spring fever right now and so a chance to run around, get some eggs, interact. We've got some fun characters.

These fun characters were workers dressed as gorillas, chickens, and even a tiger, running around the zoo to help the kids with their hunt.
Kids were split into age categories, and from there they were sent on their own to fill their baskets with what they could find.
Although the thrill of the hunt is exciting, the kids generally have one thing on their minds.

(Child) We get eggs and things, and candy.

The Roosevelt Zoo will be re-opening May 4th, and season passes are being sold.
