You’re Invited to Kaleidoscope Center’s 5th Annual Easter Garden Party!

Easters-on-its-way

Spring is on its way, with Easter not too far behind it!  Mark your calendars because you are invited to Kaleidoscope Center’s Fifth Annual Easter Garden Party. Come out for this free family event on Saturday, April 4th from 12 to 2:30 p.m. when The Easter Bunny will hop into town!

The event will take place in the courtyard of the main level of the center and will kick off with an Easter egg hunt at 12 noon.  Children should bring their own basket to collect Easter eggs. Passport cards will be given out to the first 200 children attending the event. They will help direct the children to Kaleidoscope businesses where they will each receive a candy-filled egg. (participants will receive one egg per business)

The Easter Garden Party will also offer a complimentary photo opportunity with the Easter Bunny for guests who bring their own camera. Adding to the fun will be cookie decorating from Donna B’s Bakery, free face painting, and a petting zoo with bunnies and baby chicks.
