Easter egg hunts, Easter events for children in Kewaunee County
KEWAUNEE COUNTY – Remember “The Hunt for Red October?” Well, now it’s The Hunt for Colorful March.
With Easter just over a week away, it’s time for children (and their parents and caregivers) to break out the baskets, and maybe eat a few more carrots to sharpen their vision, as they search for brightly-colored, plastic orbs across the county. Plus, it’s time to take photos with a long-eared, bucktoothed mammal standing 6-foot tall or more on its hind legs.
Easter egg hunts and Easter-related children’s events are taking place all over Kewaunee County during the next week. Here’s your guide to them.
► Kewaunee Heritage Farm holds its second annual Easter Eggstravaganza from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday.
Young ones can meet the Easter Bunny and get photos with him from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. (bring your own camera). A craft and vendor show will be held, and vendors will have goodies for children, so bring the Easter baskets. Food will be available for purchase.
