Looking for an Easter Event or an Egg Hunt in Dallas or surrounding areas? See what’s hopping this year in the metroplex!

Going on an Egg Hunt

Taking the kiddos on an Easter egg hunt is always a joy. The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden features members-only egg hunts. Surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of tulips and spring blooms, participants are divided into age-appropriate groups, so everyone has a fair shake at egg-gathering. (We hear tickets are going fast, so reserve your spots today.)

Pooch Parades

You know the Easter season is officially upon us when you see Dallas pooches flaunting their Sunday best! The annual Easter in Lee Park and Pooch Parade is a must-attend event. In addition to the pup parade, participants enjoy music, food and vendors.

Neighborhood Eggstravaganza

Some of your favorite neighborhoods sponsor egg hunts — and you need only show up with enthusiasm and an egg-collecting basket. One of our favorites is the University Park Eggstravaganza, which takes place this weekend in Goar Park. Additional activities at this annual event include photos with the Easter Bunny, face painting, bounce houses, snacks and music.

Easter Eats

Many of the chefs at your beloved restaurants are preparing seasonal offerings for Easter brunch. Some of the restaurants we recommend include FearingsLark on the ParkToulouse Cafe and Bar, and Oak. Be sure to make your reservations now, because tables fill up quickly. (- From Culturemap.com )
