Though we’re a week early, the festivities are already here! During the month of April, events are held throughout the Seattle region in spirits of Easter. It’s an excellent time to plan a family day and help out a cause or two along the way!
Curious what some of the events are this weekend? We’ve got you covered! Below are a list of the area’s bunny parties:
- Pike Place Market Bunny Party: This fun event features an egg hunt (at 11am), coloring activities, bunny visits, crafts, and a silent auction. The best part? This event sponsors the Seattle Animal Shelter and Special Bunny Rescue. All ticket sales go directly to these causes!

- Fox Hollow Family Farm holds Easter 2017! Fox Hollow hides over 40,000 candy-filled eggs throughout their 5 acres – and don’t worry, it’s not a race!
