Get your hippity-hop on this Easter and good luck choosing how to do that with all the options available, from as early as this weekend to all of Easter Weekend, and from one end of Walworth County to the other!
When it comes to the Easter Egg Hunts, I’m thinking it should be like planning for a road trip, figuring out what’s the best route to take to see and do the most things. I mean, come on, it’s Easter Egg Hunting time, and that usually means they are filled with jelly beans (and I’m one of those weird people that actually like the black ones!) and candy-coated eggs that turn your tongue pretty colors and peanut butter-filled egg-shaped candy and, well, you get the idea (plus now you know what a couple of my favorites are…)! So pick one, or two, or okay maybe five, of the Easter Egg Hunts listed, check your Easter basket for any holes, and on your mark, get set, go! Happy Hunting and don’t forget I’ll take the black jelly beans we both know you don’t like!
Hmmm… So you’re thinking Easter Egg Hunts are only for the younger generation, like those 3 feet tall and less. Wrong! Think again, ‘coz Staller Estate Winery has an adult Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 15, 11am-6pm. “Easter Dusting” is what they call it: you search for an egg – limit one per person, and you must be 21 years or older, which right there tells you it’s gotta be good being for adults only! – then trade in the egg you find for a prize. Three guesses what it might be since you’re doing this at a winery or at least I’m hoping it’s wine-related. The “dusting” comes in to play in that while some eggs are easy to find, others maybe not so much, so they say to come prepared to help “dust” the store in search of your egg! New twist on Spring cleaning, I guess!
Need to rest your legs after all that running around hunting for Easter eggs? Then climb on board the East Troy Bunny Train, running April 8, 9 and 15! Start with face painting by Suzy Sparkles and coloring activities in the East Troy Railroad Museum Depot, while checking in and getting your scavenger hunt cards. Board one of the
historic trains and take a ride down to the Elegant Farmer. Make sure to check your scavenger hunt cards for the many things you’ll see out the window as you go! Once you get to the Elegant Farmer, you’ll be able to hold baby chicks and pet bunnies as shown by local 4-H students, and even get your picture taken with the Easter Bunny! Plan ahead for this egg-cellent excursion, as reservations are recommended – you can order online East Troy Bunny Train or call 262.642.3263, then dial ‘0’ and leave a message.
So now your Easter basket is full and it’s time to think about filling your stomach with an egg-stravaganza of food choices, which can be found at none other than an Easter Brunch or Dinner, of course! You can go out to eat at any, some or all, of the locations shown below or Lake Lawn Resort is offering “Easter Dinner to Go” – just pre-order by no later than noon on April 12 by calling 262.725.9155. So many choices…so much food… what an egg-ceptional problem to have!
It’s such an egg-stremely fun time of year, so make the most of it in Walworth County as the egg-sactly perfect place to be for all things Easter!
Okay, I’m done with the egg word puns. I guess I got a little carried away and even a bit egg-zasperating with them…! Hahaha – had that last one just screaming to be let out, so had no choice or I’d egg-splode. Alright, alright, I’m truly done now!
