Easter Eggstravanganza

Pathways Baptist Church is hosting a community kid’s event the Saturday before Palm Sunday. On April 13th from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., swing by to enjoy various games and fun activities before hearing about the Easter message and getting some prizes.

Hike & Seek: Egg Hunt

This egg hunt is a little more adventurous than your normal egg hunt. You hike around Cabin John Park to find little eggs that are all different colors, and then exchange those eggs for prizes. However, you must be registered before the event to get the prize, and you can do that here. There is very limited space, so sign up now!

The check-in time for the egg hunt is from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., and they will give you hints to get you started on your search for eggs. It’s only $6 per family to register, and all ages are welcome.


Bunnyland is open on April 13, 14, 18, 19, 20, and 22. There is a $9.50 admission for kids who are 12 months and up, and $7.50 for adults or older children who don’t want a goodie basket. Admission includes a jumping pad, a hayride down Bunny Trail, good baskets, and so much more fun and games! There’s pony rides, face painting, and food too! Click here for more information.
