There have already been myriad egg hunts and other Easter festivities, but the best are maybe yet to come this weekend. So set aside a bit of time this weekend to check out some of our favorite Easter traditions, compiled right here. Rabbit ears are optional.
1. Check out a Peeps show.
The South Haven Memorial Library will host a colorful collection of literary-themed dioramas using the popular marshmallow confections. Viewers can vote on their favorites for the People's Choice Award.
2. Visit the Bun.
Snap a picture with the Easter Bunny and partake in festive family games aplenty during the Cappon House's annual Bunny Hop in downtown Holland. Kids get a goodie bag to take home.
3. Dye eggs in fabulous ways.
Tie-dye, marbleize, tattoo, paint and try your hand at other creative ways to decorate eggs at the Forever Curious Children's Museum in Fennville. Bring your own hard-boiled eggs.
4. Hunt for treasure.
Grab your goggles for a unique underwater egg hunt at the Holland Aquatic Center. Participants can collect hundreds of plastic eggs from the pools and redeem them for goodie bags.
6. Tuck into a tasty brunch.
Savor a spectacular Easter Sunday brunch at Fernwood Botanical Garden and Nature Preserve in Niles, where carved ham, salad, desserts and other delicious fare will be served up in an idyllic setting. Head out for a spring hike afterward.
7. Catch a parade.
Don your spiffiest Easter bonnet -- the bigger and more outlandish, the better -- and walk in the short procession through downtown Douglas. The festivities end with an egg hunt at Beery Field.
All the details -- and more! -- are on the Southwest Michigan Kids calendar. Hop to it!
