Egg Hunts Around Town…
Egg Hunts are probably the first thing people think of for Easter weekend, especially if they have kids! And Sarasota doesn’t disappoint! Practically every church has an Easter egg hunt or egg drop, or fun Easter service planned for the whole family, and a few schools are hosting egg hunts as well!

Many of these events are on Sunday prior to or following Easter church services or brunches!

Admission for the kids will be 1/2 off the regular child’s admission price for this event! Sound like fun!? You can go to their website to check out more about it!
Meet the Easter Bunny at the Mall(s)…
Everyone seems to have a memory of either meeting Santa or the Easter Bunny at the mall when they were a kid, and it hasn’t changed too much! Most of the malls in Sarasota are hosting an ongoing “Meet the Easter Bunny” photo op that runs for a week or so before Easter. Each mall has different times and hours so go check the info on your favorite mall to see when the Easter Bunny will be near you!
