SUAMICO - The NEW Zoo in Suamico has been hosting its annual Easter event for years.
It's not only a chance for kids to hunt down eggs, it's a tradition for many families in our area.
"It's the Easter Bunny!" exclaimed one youngster.
It's a sight many kids love to see: Eggs, candy and the Easter Bunny.
The annual Easter EggStravaganZoo is an event the Guerndt family wouldn't miss.
"Every year there's something a little different," said Dan Guerndt.
The entire family are members at the NEW Zoo.
"We are firm believers in what the zoo stands for and all the wonderful activities they offer families and children," said Karen Guerndt.
The Easter event is always a highlight for their kids around the holiday.
"All the eggs you find and all the stations and all the different colored eggs!" said Aleeya Guerndt.
Searching for eggs is great but seeing their favorite animal is even better, including penguins and buffalo.
Snow covered the ground as families hurried through the paths to find their colored eggs.
"Well... I kind of like the snow because you can put it in the snow. It's harder to find them," said Aleeya Guerndt.
And the gloomy cold weather didn't stop the animals at the NEW Zoo from enjoying the event.
"When it's this cold out our animals are actually more active and they like the cold weather and there is more to see believe it or not," said Angela Kawski with the NEW Zoo.
It was another great year for the EggStravaganZoo and the Guerndt family.
"We're going to keep bringing them until they don't want to come anymore... I don't see that happening," said Karen Guerndt.
There was also a porkie and pancake breakfast for the families to enjoy before the egg hunt.
