Last year Emma was a little too young to enjoy Easter so I’m excited to look for some fun Easter events for her this year. Here are the ones I’ve been eyeing:
Annual Easter Bunny Garden Party from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m on April 2nd at the Los Cerritos Center. There will be an Easter Bunny, flower crafts, bunny snacks (provided by Red Robin) and it’s all free!
8Th Annual Costa Mesa Easter Festival & Treasure Hunt will be at the Orange County Market Place Saturday, April 19th 9:30am – 2:30pm. There will be free photos with the Easter Bunny, Easter Brunch with gourmet food trucks (9:30am – 2:30pm), a Treasure Hunt (10am-2pm), face painting, a puppet show (11am & 1pm) and more.
