LITCHFIELD PARK, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

Easter weekend is around the corner which means families have the chance to hunt for eggs among wild animals at the Wildlife World Zoo, Aquarium and Safari Park

The Easter egg hunts will be on Saturday, March 31 and Sunday, April 1 at 1:30 for kids 7 years old and under and an all-ages hunt starts at 3:30 p.m. both days. The Easter egg hunt is free with the purchase of a ticket into the Wildlife World park.

This year, families get to see Austin, a newborn Somalian giraffe, who came into the world just last month. All who attend get the chance to feed baby Austin and all other giraffes at the 12-foot-tall giraffe feeding station.
