Have you ever wanted to hug a bunny? Of course you have!

The Chattanooga Zoo will once again celebrate the arrival of spring with their annual Hug-a-Bunny Day on March 26 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The all-day event offers plenty of springtime activities and up-close bunny and animal encounters in a section called the “bunny zone.”


Most activities are included with regular zoo admission. Unlimited access wristbands for the bunny zone are an additional $5, and photos with the Easter Bunny will also be offered for $7. Carousel, train and camel rides will also be offered for an additional cost.

The bunny zone features a bounce house, games, crafts, face painting and education stations. Plus, guests will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with a variety of bunnies.
