This year’s event will be held at Charlie Daniels Park.”
Eggstravaganzoo at the Zoo
According to an email, “Nashville Zoo’s annual spring celebration will take place on April 3 with egg hunts and Easter fun for the whole family. With health and safety precautions in place, the Zoo will host 13 egg hunts in an area larger than ever before. Additional activities include keeper talks, animal encounters, and egg hunting for the Zoo’s animals throughout the day. Nashville Zoo is limiting attendance on April 3 so reservations are required for everyone, including members. The event is expected to sell out so guests are encouraged to reserve their entry time early. The Zoo also recommends that guests reserve their entry time at least an hour prior to their scheduled hunt.”
