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 April 11- Sunday April 13, 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.

Sunday, April 20: at Ikea in West Sacramento there will be an Easter egg hunt in Smaland at 11am, 1pm and 3pm.  This is a Free event.

April 10- April 20 : Ride along The Sacramento River Train  and enjoy a train ride and Easter Egg Hunt with the Easter Bunny!  The trip is 3 hours departing from Woodland or West Sacramento.  They will travel to Elkhorn Park where the Easter Bunny hosts a fun egg hunt.  While on the train, entertainers visit car to car. $36 Adults & Child $29 (age 2-12).  Optional food & snacks available for sale.

Saturday, April 19 and Sunday April 20- Fairytale Town hosts their annual Spring Eggstravaganza.  Search for hundreds of hidden eggs, participate in hands on spring activities and enjoy the park that was made to inspire children’s imagination!  The egg hunt is FREE with park admission.

This is just a handful of the events that are going on around town.  Some are free, some have a small charge – but one thing is for sure, whatever you choose to do, spring is here and there is no excuse to not get out and enjoy the season.
