posted by:

[photopress:bunny.jpg,full,pp_image]Just in case you have somehow missed the onslaught of rabbits and candy at the store, the Easter Bunny is coming to town this weekend! The following is a list of some Easter weekend highlights; check with your local chamber to see if there is an Easter egg hunt near you.

April 11, Arvada Kite Festival, Robby Ferrufino Park, 74th and Carr St
http://www.arvadafestivals.com
Kite flying competitions, exhibitions, activities for the kids and live music. Mary Poppins comes to mind, but haven’t kites gone hi-tech these days?
FREE

April 11th, Bunny Trail EggVenture, Children’s Museum of Denver
http://www.cmdenver.org/
It’s a basket making, egg dyeing Eggstravaganza! Kids can follow the Bunny Trail throughout the museum to discover “Eggs-ploration Stations,” go one-on-one with live animals and of course, what’s Easter without a photo op with the Easter Bunny himself?
Free with museum admission

April 11th, Bunny Express, Colorado Railroad Museum
http://www.coloradorailroadmuseum.org/sites/default/files/imce/2.pdf
The Easter Bunny has to get around somehow and this Easter celebration is powered by a Georgetown Loop Railroad diesel locomotive. Families can go for a ride on the narrow gauge train, participate in egg hunts, take a picture with the Easter Bunny and much more.
Free with museum admission

April 11th, Fish N Farm Grand Opening and Easter Celebration, Heritage Square
http://www.heritagesquare.info/
Heritage Square will offer all-day family fun to kick off the seasonal opening for their amusement park. Expect egg hunts, candy at every venue and meet-and-greets with the Easter Bunny. Oh, and don’t forget all the newly opened rides!
Special events free; money required for rides and shops

April 12, Copper Mountain

http://www.coppercolorado.com/todo/events/2008-03/Easter_egg_Hunt.htm
It’s Colorado’s largest Easter egg hunt and 50,000 eggs will fill the Village and Mountain. There will be an all-ages hunt on the mountain and two children’s hunts in the village. Plus there will be special “Copper Eggs” in each of the hunts that can be redeemed for great prizes!

April 12, Easter Eggstravaganza at the Denver Zoo
http://www.denverzoo.org/
If makes perfect sense that the Easter Bunny would swing by the zoo to hang out with his fellow animals. Mongoose, red river hogs, polar bears, arctic foxes, river otters, gorillas, and mandrills will enjoy colored, hard-boiled eggs. Watch as the animals forage for their food and crack the eggs open. The complete feeding schedule is available at their Web site.
Free with paid admission

April 12, Easter Sunrise Service, Red Rocks Amphitheatre
http://www.redrocksonline.com
Taking in the annual Easter Sunrise Service at Red Rocks is a tradition for many families. Don’t miss the chance to enjoy breathtaking views from the amphitheatre. Make sure to arrive early as this event is very popular.
Free

Happy Easter!
