This weekend, there’s plenty of bunny-and-egg themed excitement to keep you and the Littles hopping (and we’re not even referring to all of the chocolate bunnies and Peeps that will be consumed!). On our eggs-traordinary lineup: an egg hunt through a bakery and produce department, an Easter celebration with the animals, a wildly popular springtime celebration, a race for colored eggs, an annual egg hunt near the water, and a super-fun evening with the Easter Bunny. If you could use a night out on the town sans kids, MOHAI’s Kids Drive-In Movie Night will feature lots of fun including a G-rated movie, snacks and cardboard car making.
