Updated: Tuesday, March 28, 2017

Hippy hop! It’s almost time for Easter and what better way to celebrate than with some eggs-travagant fun! Bunnies, brunches, and hunts galore are about to hit local malls and parks, but where should you go and which ones should you do? We’ve scoped it out and have put together the a list many of the Easter events around the Peninsula  - with callouts to the ones PAMP parents love the most! Make sure to check the dates – some are as soon as this weekend!

Special Needs Bunny:
If you have a child with special needs, you sometimes miss getting out to events because not every child thrives in loud or high-energy situations. For this, Autism Speaks has arranged for the Caring Bunny to visit the Peninsula. The Caring Bunny provides a subdued and welcoming environment for children with special needs and their families.
