Easter Egg Hunts, Parades and Other Easter Fun in Minnesota in 2014!
Want to take your children to an Easter Egg Hunt, Easter Parade, Easter Train Ride or other Easter event in Minnesota in 2014?
Here's Where to Find Easter Fun in Minnesota!
There are Easter Eggs hunts all over Minnesota in 2014! They are great fun for families with children! Most allow children from babies through elementary school to participant in the actual hunt, but almost all also have many other activities, music, food and entertainment for adults and older children. The egg hunts are usually right around Easter (obviously), often late March or early April; in 2014, since Easter is Sunday, April 20th, many are being held on Saturday April 12th and Saturday April 19th. - just click on the link to the event's website to confirm this year's date! Then (in most cases), you want to click on the "events" link or "calendar" link on their website. Or use their site search for "Easter". There are also Easter breakfasts and brunches and Easter parades to watch! And if you would like to make your own natural organic Easter Egg dye, here's how to do it! And see these pages for a history of the Easter egg or the history of Easter egg hunts, and the origin of the Easter Bunny! This page shows you how to hard boil eggs and this page how to blow (or empty) an egg.
Always confirm dates and times via the contact information provided - they often change or cancel and do not tell me!
