Are you as EGG-cited as we are about this weekend? (Editors Note: We're sorry.) We sure are. Seen and Heard is our weekly look into family-friendly activities in Denton, TX. Hop to it! Below are a few family-friendly events that you and your crew can jump into this weekend.
Friday-Saturday, April 2-4
Easter Bunny Picnic | Rancho De La Roca | $7 | 10:30-12:30
Pack a picnic and head north games, photos with the Easter Bunny, and a hayride to Calvary while being told the glorious Easter story. Photos are $5, but the memories will be priceless.
Saturday, April 4th
Eggstravaganza | Civic Center | Free | 9:30-11:30
Bounce houses, a magic show, and arts and crafts precede the big egg hunt at 11:30. Children through grade 5 are welcome to participate. Bring $2 for a pic with the Easter bunny, and extra cash for concessions if you think you might get a hankering for something other than jelly beans.
Community Picnic | Joe Skiles Park | Free | 11am
Southmont Baptist Church invites the community to a picnic in Joe Skiles Park. After games and bounce houses, the egg hunt begins at 11:30. Hot dogs and cotton candy will follow. Sounds like a south-sider’s day out!
Texas Tulips | Tulip Field in Pilot Point | Free | 9am - 7:30pm
This is cool! Texas' first field of tulips. Parking and entrance is free and you can even pick your own tulips and buy 'em. The field is only 10 minutes north of 380. Worth the drive. Go force your kids to pick some tulips and take their photo. That, or throw them in the hay maze and see who survives.
Egg Drop and Movie | Unicorn Lake | Donations | 5:30pm
This community-wide event is open to everyone, and includes pet adoption, face painting, the Easter Bunny, and at 8pm the movie “Hop” will be shown outdoors. Plenty of restaurants will happily have you in for dinner. The eggs drop at 5:30 for children ages 8 and under. Bonus: donations will be accepted for the rebuilding project for Eureka playground!
