Easter fun here and there

Your kids can get their Easter egg hunt fix at several places nearby this weekend.
Seattle Parks and Recreation is hosting egg hunts at community centers. All events start at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 3, are free, and take place rain or shine. Children ages 2 – 10 scramble for goodies in age-appropriate hunt areas. Bring your own basket or bag for collecting (and a nonperishable food donation if you want).

  • Ballard Community Center, 6020 28th Ave. NW, (206) 684-4093.
  • Bitter Lake Community Center Annex, 13040 Greenwood Ave. N, (206) 684-7524.
  • Loyal Heights Community Center, 2101 NW 77th St., (206) 684-4052.
  • Green Lake Community Center, 7201 E Green Lake Dr. N., (206) 684-0780: ages 3 and younger hunt for eggs at 10 a.m.; ages 4-6 at 10:30 a.m.; and ages: 7-11 at 11 a.m.

Woodland Park Zoo hosts its annual Bunny Bounce for ages 1-8 from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. There are crafts, bunny encounters, entertainment and other animal enrichment programs throughout the day. It’s included with zoo admission.

A limited supply of egg hunt bags will be provided for children without their own bag or basket. For the health and well being of zoo animals, candy will not be placed inside the eggs – egg hunt participants will receive their treats as they exit the zoo.
