Kids scrambled for hundreds of eggs stuffed with surprises at Jungle Island's Annual Easter Eggstravaganza Sunday.
"My favorite part of today is hunting for eggs," said Ezequiel Cartaya.
He was excited about the treats inside.
"Candy, stickers and little coins," he said.
Parents and kids lined up to meet the Easter bunny, which was a big hit at the event. Some kids also cuddled with real rabbits, and Judy the elephant also made a special appearance.
Ivan Hadfeg took a ride on the elephant with his whole family.
"It is quite enjoyable," said Hadfed, who brough his wife and three young sons.
The "eggstravaganza," which is the longest running Easter celebration in South Florida, drew more than 9,000 people over three days. A portion of the admission sales benefited Children First in the University of Miami's pediatric department.
"Beautiful day to enjoy with the beautiful sun and for the kids to enjoy themselves," said parent Krysthel Mejia.
Other highlights included the bounce house, face painting, arts and crafts and animal encounters.
"For me, the meaning of Easter is just celebrating with your family and those who love you and spending quality time with those you love," said parent Marissa Thomas.
