Easter Events in the DC Metro

Easter is this Sunday!  Are you looking for something fun to do?  Here are a few different events going on in our nation’s capital this Easter.

The 2012 White House Easter Egg Roll is a traditional event.  It will actually be held on Monday the 9th this year.  There are a lot of different activities associated with the egg roll, including indoor and outdoor activities for the whole family, a brunch, live entertainment, tennis, video games, and a concert by the Bay City Rollers.  Tickets are required.

The National Zoo is also hosting an egg roll/hunt on the 9th.  This event features live entertainment, a lot of different food, and arts and crafts.

Many churches in the DC area will be hosting Easter services on the morning of Easter.  Many also have Easter events planned after the services, including egg hunts and lunches.

A number of local restaurants also have Easter lunch, brunch, and dinner specials.  Check out the different dining options, but be sure to ask about reservations—some places may fill up quickly.

Butler’s Orchard will be hosting Bunnyland on the 6, 7, 9, and 15 of April.  There is an admission cost ($8.50 for children, $6.50 for adults), but kids get to visit the Easter bunny, hunt eggs, play on giant slides, and get up close and personal with animals in the petting zoo.

There’s also a Spring Easter Festival at Ticonderoga Farm.  This festival will be open until April 15, so there’s plenty of time to visit.  It includes many different activities, including a petting zoo, bird watching, swings, hayrides, a maze, face painting, egg hunts, and much more.

If your child wants to meet the Easter bunny, he will be appearing at many local malls and other department stores.  Most have an area set up with decorations and a professional photographer.

Don’t want to get out on Easter?  You can have your own Easter event at home.  Color eggs, have an egg hunt, or sit back and watch some movies related to Easter.  Many families also like celebrating Easter with family traditions, such as having family dinner.

Happy Easter from the MyFlorist family!
