For 2016, the annual Alligator Egg Hunt officially becomes the Dinosaur Egg Hunt, in honor of the new animatronic exhibit, "DINOSAURS!" opening March 19. The Dinosaur Egg Hunt will take place March 19, 25 and 26.
"While the reptiles are bigger, the fun remains the same with children learning, creating and playing during this much loved tradition," the Aquarium stated in a press release.
Here's what to expect at this year's fun, family-friendly egg hunt:Aquarium educators will introduce children to a live baby alligator and share fun facts about reptiles, both prehistoric and ones living today.
Kids will create their own dinosaur egg basket and search for candy-filled "dinosaur" eggs in the Aquarium garden, where six new animatronic dinosaurs make their home.
The Dinosaur Egg Hunt is recommended for children ages 3-10 (children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult) and limited space is available. This events sells out quickly every year, so reserve a space now!
