Zoosiana in Broussard is once again holding its annual EggstravaganZoo in celebration of Easter.

The zoo is celebrating EggstravaganZoo throughout the month of March on into April, leading up to Easter Sunday.

This year's EggstravaganZoo runs now through April 8th daily.

Some of the highlights include:

  • Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt
  • Candy treat bag upon exit (for children 12 and under)
  • Photo Opp Spot for this year's Easter Family Photo
  • Gem Mining
  • See your favorite Zoosiana animals

The good thing about this event is that there is no special event pricing. Normal zoo admission applies and Zoosiana Members get in free.


Candy Treat Bags

All children 12 years old and under who participate in the Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt can receive a special treat bag when exiting the zoo. Please ask a gift shop staff member for your treat bag as you exit, either from inside the gift shop or at the front windows.

Gem Mine

Jungle George's Good-Timing Gem Mining is open. Step and explore the wonders you can find, from gemstones to fossils and more. Select your discovery bag, pour it into your sifting pan, and watch your treasures appear. You can even take home what you find. Several options are available and prices vary. The Gem Mine is located across from the Parakeet Aviary.

Storybook Carousel

This Venetian carousel is themed after 18th-century fashion and was manufactured and hand-painted in Italy. It includes 20 horses, with some jumping and some stationary, a gondola, a spinning "tea cup," and can ride 24 passengers at once. The carousel is designed for children and includes a plaza and garden area, filled with storybook statues peeking through the rich flora.

Admission & Pricing

There is no special pricing for EggstravaganZoo. Regular admission prices apply all month long and Zoosiana Members get in free. Normal fees apply to all regular zoo attractions.
