Lion Country Safari offers family Easter fun this weekend

LOXAHATCHEE, Fla. - Check out Lion Country Safari this weekend for some Easter fun with the family!

On Friday, a pride of lions were released into a large pen filled with Easter boxes with chunks of meat inside.

Then, the animals at the sanctuary will go on an Easter egg hunt Saturday and Sunday from 9:30 a.m. through noon.

"Happy animals tend to be healthier animals, so we do this to encourage them to display natural behaviors and keep them entertained while they're out here on display," general curator Brian Dowling.

Then, from noon to 2 p.m. there will be free egg craft at the education station on both days. An Easter meal will be available to purchase at the Lion County Safari restaurant on Sunday.

Admission price is $29.95 for adults. Admission for children ages 3 to 9 is $21.95.
