Make Easter Egg-stra Special!

Easter will be here before you know it - this year it's April 14-16! It's a weekend filled with traditional Easter fun - plus a few not-so-traditional activities. From the Easter Bonnet Parade and Egg Hunt, to decorating cookies and eggs, to roasting Peeps and creating a Peeps diorama, it's the perfect weekend for you and your family to enjoy discovering the first signs of spring.

Here are some of the highlights of the weekend:

Egg-cellent Easter Dining

Celebrate the best of spring with bountiful buffets at either The Copper Mine Bistro or Stoney Creek Bar & Grill!

Easter Eggstravaganza, Saturday, April 15, 1-4 pm

Easter crafts and fun for the whole family! There will be egg decorating, Easter cookie decorating and five crafts: jelly bean butterfly, Easter bonnet or top hat, bunny banner, Easter bucket, and block bunny or block chick (see pictures of crafts below). Come out with your families and enjoy this afternoon of egg-citing fun! Cost: $29 per person includes egg decorating, cookie decorating and all five crafts. Reservations required, call 434-325-8180.

Peeps Diorama Contest

Get your creative juices flowing and prepare for the Third Annual Peeps Diorama Contest! Use Peeps -- those colorful marshmallow chicks and bunnies -- to create a scene of your choosing and bring your finished diorama to Discovery Ridge on Friday, April 14, then vote for your favorite on April 15. Prizes will be awarded on Easter Sunday, April 16. See contest rules.
