The Eggstravaganzoo is the Nashville Zoo's annual Easter event and one of Nashville's most popular Easter events. Kids will enjoy getting special treats and even a few to give to the animals too. The Easter Bunny will be on hand to meet with the kids but the main event is their Annual Easter Egg Hunt. Make sure to forewarn the kids that all of the easter eggs are empty but not to fret because after each egg hunt they can be turned in for a variety of special prizes.

There's no better place in Nashville to learn about the Lord's Last Supper than the Upper Room Chapel. That hosts a woodcarving, sculpted by Ernest Pellegrini, of Leonardo da Vinci's painting "The Last Supper." Visitors can also enjoy the Upper Room Museum, whose permanent collection reflects the international, interracial, and interdenominational nature of The Upper Room.
