Egg hunts fill Easter weekend in Minot

Celebrate Easter with the Easter Bunny, egg hunts and more

Sometimes the weather doesn’t play along with the holiday season and can change plans. In 2018, Easter at the Zoo had to take place indoors, but that didn’t ruin the kids chance for eggs. Submitted Photo
