Every weekend, there are so many things to do around the area that it can be hard to pin down where to spend some family time. Here are some options that the team at Go Valley Kids thinks that your family will enjoy together.
There are so many egg hunts happening! Find one here: Easter Egg Hunt Guide
Saturday, April 8, 2017
4378 Reforestation Road, Suamico
9:00am – 2:00pm
FREE admission for one for Zoo Pass Members, $12 for tickets at the door or $10 purchased in advance at Suamico Citgo and online
Meijer EggStravaganZoo will include a family-friendly scavenger hunt to find treat stations for kids (and even some stations for adults, too!). All the delicious treats at our Candy Stations this year are generously provided by Meijer – so you’re sure to enjoy filling your baskets! Every family or group that enters the zoo will receive a Scavenger Hunt Card to help guide you around the facility to find Candy and Game Stations. Before leaving the zoo, turn in your Hunt Card at the Visitor Center, where each child will receive a special prize before leaving.
Throughout the event, visitors can meet the Easter Bunny, enjoy kids’ games, animal encounters, ride the carousel, and (weather permitting) play on two large inflatables. We will also have face painting AND The Dog Haus will be here to serve up their fantastic fresh deep-fried cheese curds!
New this year: everyone who comes in wearing a “Spring Bonnet or Baseball Cap” (any spring-themed decorated hat*) will receive a prize, and both kids and adults are welcome to join in! Be creative -or just a little crazy- and have some fun getting into the springtime spirit.
