5 Signs of Spring this Weekend in Cincinnati

Happy April, Cincinnati Parents! Spring has arrived, and this weekend’s activities are sure to put an extra “hop” in your step. Easter Egg hunts, Butterflies, Zoo Blooms — it’s going to be a glorious weekend in the Queen City!

Here are 5 signs of spring this weekend in Cincinnati:

Zoo Blooms
April 1-30 at the Cincinnati Zoo
Every spring, the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden becomes the Cincinnati Botanical Garden & Zoo when it transforms into a magnificent explosion of color! As one of only two accredited botanical gardens in Ohio, the Cincinnati Zoo offers one of the largest tulip displays in the Midwest. Dubbed “Tulip Mania,” Zoo Blooms also features more than one million daffodils, hyacinths, flowering trees, shrubs and other spring bulbs exploding with color.

Tarzan the Stage Musical Based on the Disney Film
Sat., April 1 and Sun., April 2
Spring means many things; sadly, it means the end of The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati’s season. Don’t miss the final Main Stage show of the 2016-17 season! Washed up on the shores of West Africa, an infant boy is taken in and raised by gorillas who name him Tarzan. Tarzan’s life is mostly monkey business until a human expedition treks into his troop’s territory and he encounters creatures like himself for the first time. Tarzan struggles to navigate a jungle, thick with emotion as he discovers his animal upbringing clashing with his human instincts.

Daily through June 18 at Krohn Conservatory
