El Paso Zoo to Celebrate “Party for the Planet,” “Eggstravaganzoo” April 20-21

The El Paso Zoo will be celebrating two of the most popular events of the spring, Eggstravaganzoo and Party for the Planet, that will be held simultaneously at the zoo.

“The zoo is combining both events because this year Easter Sunday and Earth day are close in proximity,” zoo officials shared via an emailed news release. “Both family-friendly events provide a safe environment to have some fun while celebrating spring with the zoo animals. There will be spring-themed activities throughout the weekend.”

From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on April 20 and 21, children ages 3 to 12 will be able to participate in seven special candy station activities such as hula-hoops, hopscotch, and more as they collect stamps to redeem for a special surprise.

The Easter Bunny will be available for photos for $10 inside the zoo’s event pavilion.

In addition to candy stations, animal enrichment sponsored by T-Mobile will be available all day. Guests can enjoy viewing some of the zoo animals receive an Easter or Earth Day-themed enrichment. El Paso community partners will be in attendance to inform guests about sustainability.

The zoo is also celebrating the birthday of female orangutan Khaleesi, who was born on Earth Day in 2015.

Guests can enjoy live entertainment at the Asia Plaza stage such as live bands, a magic show, loteria, and more.  Most activities, entertainment, and candy stations are provided at no cost with paid admission.

The only exceptions are Easter Bunny photos, face painting, giraffe feeding, and train and carousel rides.

For more information on both events, visit the El Paso Zoo online.

El Paso Zoo Hosts Party for the Planet this Weekend

The El Paso Zoo invites the community to celebrate Earth Day with a Party for the Planet from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, April 22 and 23, at the zoo.

The family-friendly celebration will include live entertainment, piñatas for the animals, games and fun activities. There will be Earth Day-related arts and crafts, interactive activities, booths, and kid-friendly yoga classes all weekend.

Part of the celebration incudes animal enrichment for Zoo animals like the elephants, meerkats, and orangutans.

Party for the Planet reminds the community about three things regarding the El Paso Zoo:

  1. The zoo provides excellent and expert care for animals, prioritizing their welfare and wellbeing.
  2. The zoo is actively saving wildlife from extinction through its conservation work at the zoo and in the field.
  3. The zoo acts and communicates with the purpose of inspiring people to value wild animals, taking responsibility for their safeguarding and action for their stability.
