    Easter Bunny? Ehh, it's been done.

    Today, the National Zoo is hosting its annual Easter Monday event today for African-American families. The free gathering at the zoo runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It includes an Easter egg hunt, games and a visit from -- yep, the "Easter panda." You can go to catch gospel performances, a Caribbean and reggae band and other performers.

    The zoo exhibits will include 56 different talks with animal keepers and demonstrations and feedings of the cheetahs, gorillas, elephants and other animals.

    The zoo has been hosting the Easter Monday event since the 1890s.
