Celebrate this Easter with one of these great events in and around South Beach. Head to the zoo for an egg hunt, or make your way to North Shore for fun, games and more hidden Easter eggs at the Spring Eggstravaganza. Some of our other great ideas for Easter activities also include a visit to a fully-functional hobby farm and Miami Seaquarium’s annual Bunny Palooza. Oh, and in case you’re worried there’s nothing fun for adults, don’t worry; we’ve got some serious brunches on offer, too!
Egg Safari at Zoo Miami
Is there anything kids like more than the zoo? What about a zoo packed with hidden Easter eggs? This Easter, Zoo Miami will be peppered with over 100,000 chocolate eggs for kids to hunt down. There will also be an array of different games and activities to keep the kids occupied, including watching the zoo animals themselves hunt for their own treats. The Easter Bunny himself will also make an appearance. Participation in Egg Safari is included with standard entry to Zoo Miami. Find out more at the zoo’s website.
Bunny Palooza at Miami Seaquarium
If anyone missed out on finding a chocolate egg or two at the zoo, then try your luck during Miami Seaquarium’s Bunny Palooza. Along with an Easter egg hunt, the Bunny Balooza will also include bouncy houses, a foam zone and even a parade. The event takes place over the entire Easter weekend, from Friday April 19 to Sunday, April 21. More information is available at the Miami Seaquarium website.
On the Saturday before Easter, get a head-start on the egg hunting at North Shore Park during the Spring Eggstravaganza. Along with the egg hunt, there will also be carnival rides, arts and crafts available in the park all day.
The Little Farm Egg Hunt
More chocolate eggs and adorable animals await you and your kids at The Little Farm, a functional hobby farm just south of Cutler Bay. Their egg hunt will have multiple iterations throughout the weekend, giving kids the best opportunity to find a few eggs. Kids will also enjoy a visit to the petting farm or a pony ride. Tours of the farm will also be available. Bear in mind reservations are needed. Find out how to make a reservation at the official website.
