Easter events are back for 2021! Well, sort of. Unlike last year, when nearly everything was canceled, many organizations have adapted and are inviting families for COVID-safe Easter event alternatives this spring. Let's hop to it!
Whether your comfort zone is at home on a screen, in your car, or outside/inside with masks, we have something to help your family enjoy a safe and egg-citing Easter celebration this year. We'll start with virtual events, followed by in-person events, organized by date. Happy Easter to all!
