Celebrating Easter

By Julie Grabowski

Easter is a religious celebration for Christians, remembering and honoring the risen Christ and his promise of eternal life for all who believe. The holiday has also come to mean egg hunts, spring dresses, and hearty family meals. Whatever your beliefs, interests, or celebrating tendencies, the Greater Tri-City area offers several opportunities to enjoy Easter with a variety of activities:


Join Union City Leisure Services for their annual Spring Egg Hunt Extravaganza offering egg hunts led by Mr. and Mrs. Bunny, a mini carnival, a Scholastic Book Fair, pancake breakfast (extra $5 cost), great games and exciting raffle prizes.
