Spring and Easter are right around the corner! There are a lot of local events for you and your family to attend to celebrate this wonderful time. From Easter Egg Hunts to Easter adventures under the sea, there are fun Easter events for the whole family.
Easter Events Under the Sea
Looking for a unique way to celebrate Easter with your children? Tired of the traditional Easter egg hunts? We have found a couple of Easter events for the adventurous family!
The Apex Centre, an indoor pool in McKinney, TX, is hosting an Easter Egg Splash on Saturday, March 24, from 9:00-11:45 a.m. There will be a floating Easter egg hunt for three different age groups, ranging from 2-12 years. There will also be face painting and a photo opportunity with the Easter bunny. The cost is $10 per child. To find out more information or to register for this Easter event, visit Easter Egg Splash.
The Don Rodenbaugh Natatorium in Allen, TX, is hosting Under the Sea Easter Adventure on Saturday, March 31, from 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. For this adventure, your little egg hunters need to be ready to collect as many eggs from the water as they can within a certain time limit. Each egg hunter will receive treats as well as an opportunity to take a photo with the Easter bunny. The event is open for ages 1-12 years. Registration ends on Thursday, March 29. For more information or to register for this event, visit Under the Sea Easter Adventure.
Outdoor Easter Events
If your family would rather stay above water, the city of Allen is hosting another family adventure. On Saturday, March 24, the 2018 Eggcellent Family Adventure will be from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. at Allen Civic Plaza. Rather than participating in a traditional Easter egg hunt, the children will participate in an Easter version of trick-or-treating as they visit different tables hosted by local organizations that will hand out eggs filled with goodies. There will also be photos with the Easter bunny, crafts, games, bounce houses, and face painting. And the best part is this event is free!
There will also be a cool event, the Eggcellent Eggdrop, hosted by Chick-Fil-A Allen where participants will be given various materials to build a structure that can prevent a raw egg from breaking from a 10-foot drop. There is a $10 supply fee for each participant or team that registers for this event. For more information, visit Eggcellent Family Adventure. This is an event for the whole family!
In Garland, TX, Firewheel Town Center will be hosting its annual Easter Egg-Stravaganza on Saturday, March 24, from 12:00-2:00 p.m. There will be family-friendly activities, music, games, crafts, and much more! At 1:45 p.m. in the park, there will be an Easter egg hunt for ages 12 and under. To find out more information about this event, visit Easter Egg-Stravaganza 2018.
An Easter Event for Family Fitness
Are you and your family fitness enthusiasts? Well, we have the Easter event for you! Three local organizations will be coming together to host the 2018 Eggsperanza Family Color Fun Run. The Eggsperanza Family Color Fun Run is a one-mile run that is untimed and kid-friendly. All participants will receive a hand-painted Esperanza medal. The fun run takes place on Saturday, March 24, from 8:00-11:00 a.m. The cost is $10 per participant.
Aside from a fun run, you and your children will be able to attend the Eggsperanza Festival where the Easter bunny will make an appearance and your family will receive complimentary breakfast tacos. And there will be a lot more family-friendly fun!
All of the proceeds from the fun run will go toward Juntos Servimos, an organization that provides shelter, healthcare, and education to impoverished families in northern Mexico. Not only will your family have a great time at this event, but you will also make a difference in the lives of children in Mexico.
