Here comes the most famous cottontail, hopping through the Milwaukee County Zoo on the day before Easter. Put a spring in your step and join the Zoo's bunny for the Zoo's annual early spring celebration, including the parade.
Bunny-hop over to the Primates of the World building to get bunny ears. Hop a little farther to add whiskers and a bunny nose in the Stearns Family Apes of Africa building. Kids ages 8 and under can take their baskets to the Hop-to-it Bunny Scavenger Hunt from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. They hunt for tokens to exchange for treats (with tokens, younger children get a chance at prizes). Then see Zoo animals get treats of their own! An expert "bubbleologist" will make whimsical bubble art at several shows in the Zoo's entrance atrium. At 2 p.m., shake your cottontail with the Bunny and his friends in a musical parade that starts at the Northwestern Mutual Family Farm.
