Easter’s on its way! And there’s plenty of Easter-related fun that’s only a hop away on DART. Enjoy the following eggciting events.
Saturday, April 8, the city of Dallas is hosting numerous egg hunts – dubbed the Eggs-travaganza — at city parks, including one at Crawford Memorial Park near Buckner Station. The same day, The Irving will host a free citywide egg hunt for children ages 3-10, and will even have a petting zoo. It happens at Irving Heritage Park, near the Downtown Irving/Heritage Crossing Station on the Trinity Railway Express.
Carrollton Movies on the Square
The Carrollton Movies on the Square series gets in the seasonal spirit with the showing of Hop, an Easter-themed family comedy that mixes live action with computer animation. The movie will roll at sundown, Saturday, April 15, and it’s free – as well as being a short walk from Downtown Carrollton Station.
Dallas Easter Run
It’s a little different than hunting for eggs, but the Dallas Easter Run has plenty of fun for the whole family. There’s a 4-mile run/walk, a 1-miler, and more. It all starts at 7 a.m. on Saturday, April 15, at the corner of St. Paul and San Jacinto streets — a short walk from St. Paul Station.
GeO-Deck at Reunion Tower
Hop up to the GeO-Deck at Reunion Tower for Easter fun on April 15 and April 16. Kids 12 and under can snap photos with the Easter Bunny and receive Easter-themed goodies with the purchase of a general admission ticket. It’s an event that puts a new spin on Easter, for sure. For more information, visit their website or call 214-712-7040.
For Easter Brunch
And if brunch is an Easter tradition for you, DART’s got you covered there, as well. For a Southern-style brunch, try Angela’s at the Crosswalk near Downtown Plano Station. Or make a nostalgic trolley ride part of your Easter Sunday and hit one of the many excellent spots in Uptown, such as Breadwinners or Dream Cafe.
