Miami, FL (April 10, 2017) – On April 15 & 16, celebrate Easter the green way during Zoo Miami’s Egg Safari, with 100,000 eco-friendly eggs made in the USA from plants that fully biodegrade.

Zoo Miami Members get in FREE, and an hour earlier than non-Members on both days.

Kids are sure to have a blast dancing to performances by Steve Gryb – “The Pied Piper of Percussion” – and taking photos with the Easter Bunny, plus music, games and prizes by The Hits 97.3 FM.
