Spring is in the air…so grab your baskets, bonnets and “Sunday bests” for some Easter fun in the Sacramento area.  Around town, you are sure to spot the Easter Bunny out and about, hiding the goodies for little kids.  There are quite a few Egg Hunts (Free) that your family can participate in this month, along with other fun holiday festivities.

For starters, if you want to get your child’s picture taken with the Easter Bunny, you can visit one of our local malls (Arden Fair Mall, Roseville Galleria and Sunrise Mall) and the Bunny will be available for photo sessions.

And for those of you who are searching for a fun day outing and egg hunt for your family, I have put together a list of some local activities:

Friday March 22nd – Sunday March 24th:  Funderland hosts their annual Easter Bash from 10am-6pm.  Egg Hunt will be $3 per child.  Easter Activities including arts and crafts, face painting, a visit from the bunny and more.  Also, Funderland hosts several carnival style rides that are favorites for all.
