A fun family tradition is back again this year at the Lake Superior Zoo! The Egg-stravaganza is set for Saturday, April 3 with special health and safety guidelines in place.

Lake Superior Zoo's Egg-stravaganza will be open from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., with special Members Only times also available. Due the pandemic, all tickets must be purchased in advance for one of 9 available time slots.  Each time slot has a 100 person capacity, so you'll want to purchase your tickets as soon as possible as this is expected to sell out.

Ticket prices are $14 for adults and $7 for children over 2. Lake Superior Zoo Members and children 2 and under are free, but they will still need a no-charge ticket in order to keep track of the number of guests in each time slot.
