Easter Weekend Roundup

This weekend we get to enjoy a 3 day weekend since most schools were closed today for Good Friday. My daughter and I took advantage of the day off to attend Breakfast with the Bunny at the Toledo Zoo. It was our first trip to the zoo in almost 2 years, so in addition to the Easter activities, we enjoyed getting to see the animals.

Attending the Egg Hunt and Breakfast with the Bunny today was convenient since my daughter’s soccer game overlaps with tomorrow’s Easter activities. Saturday’s free events include the 23rd Annual Pittsfield Township Egg Hunt at Montibeller Park at 10a, the Ann Arbor Jaycees Spring Eggstravaganza & Easter Egg Scramble at Buhr Park from 11a-1p, Peter Rabbit’s 11:30a visit to Nicola’s Books, and the Easter Parade Event at Toys R Us from noon-2p. Other holiday events include the Spring Eggstravaganza at Leslie Science & Nature Center from 10a-noon and Springfest at Saline Rec Center beginning at 11:30a. The Easter Bunny is also at Briarwood Mall.

Other Saturday events include Hands on Hodgepodge at Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum, a Story Telling Performance by La’Ron Williams at Downtown Branch of AADL from 1-2:30p, and Shrek as the Free Spring Matinee at Quality 16 at 9 and 10a with pre-show activities.

Since Sunday is Easter, many places are closed. If you aren’t celebrating the holiday, I recommend contacting anywhere you plan to visit. I do have a few confirmed openings/closings to share with you in the Sunday section.

Also of note this weekend is that the early bird discount expires on Sunday for Ann Arbor Rec & Ed summer camps. I know I plan to enroll my daughter this weekend before the prices go up on Monday. I definitely recommend Safety Town if you have a child entering Kindergarten or a child entering 1st grade who has not previously attended Safety Town.

Ann Arbor with Kids is your go-to source for Ann Arbor Family Fun. It got its start in an activity list that I was compiling for the playgroup I ran at our church. When my daughter started preschool, the other moms were thrilled to hear about my list. I decided to take the list public in 2009.
