BINGHAMTON -- Forget chocolate bunnies. Real Easter animals were out and about today.
The Ross Park Zoo held its annual Easter Eggstravaganza today. The event featured face painting, games, and a chance to get a picture with the Easter Bunny. Hundreds of local kids got to pet bunnies, make cotton tails, and hunt for colored eggs hidden in baskets scattered throughout the zoo -- all while learning about the animals.
"Even though we do have photos with the Easter Bunny, we try to use it as an educaitonal tool and talk about the actual bunny," said Melissa Grippin, Volunteer Coordinator of the Binghatmon Zoo.
Today's Eggstravaganza marks the first event of the Ross Park Zoo's 138th season.
