The Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens is getting a very special new animal resident for two days in April—the Easter Bunny himself.
He’ll make a stop in Sanford for the Zoo’s beloved springtime event, Hippity Hop Adventure, presented by VyStar Credit Union, which will now take place on two days: April 1 and 2.
This springtime tradition attracts kids and parents alike to enjoy a live DJ, treat stations, face painting, inflatable bounce houses, arts and crafts, a magician, themed photo ops, and other fun activities, which include taking photos with the Easter Bunny. The Zoo’s animals will also receive Easter-themed enrichment items in their habitats over the two days.
This year’s Hippity Hop Adventure will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with last entry at 3:15 p.m., and is included in general admission to the Zoo.
“Hippity Hop Adventure is a yearly tradition for not only us at the Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens, but for many families,” said CEO Richard E. Glover, Jr. “We’re thankful to VyStar Credit Union for helping us continue this fun celebration of the season.”
This event is a blackout date for Annual Passholders, and admission is $5 per person named on the pass during the event. For more information and to buy tickets, visit https://www.centralfloridazoo.org/event/hippity-hop/.
