By mid-April, Philly families notice birds building nests, hyacinth, daffodils, and cherry blossom showcasing their colorful beauty, as well as frogs singing their croaky tunes, and sprouts of ever-so-slightly greener grass bursting into view. And in turn, the pages of our event calendar are enlivened with springtime happenings.
Climb aboard for a train ride at Strasburg Railroad, The Colebrookdale Railroad, or New Hope & Ivyland Railroad for a trip with the Easter Bunny. Take a wagon ride at Highland Orchards. Search for Easter treats at local egg hunts in Franklin Square, Ridley Park, East Goshen Township or Awbury Arboretum. Dig to discover artifacts at Newlin Grist Mill's Public Archaeology Program. Or, participate in a Philadelphia tradition by watching the Easter Promenade as Mr. and Mrs. Peter Cottontail welcome springtime to the Delaware Valley.
Perhaps, though, Philly kids may be more curious about what they might find in their baskets on Easter morning. Peeps? Chocolate bunny? Jelly beans? No matter how you find your basket filled, have a "Hippity, Hoppity, Happy Easter Day."
