There is still time to get the kids out to do some good old fashioned hunting and gathering-Easter Style-at the North Coventry Fire Company on Rt.724 in Pottstown. Their Easter Egg hunt, which is one of the largest I have ever taken my own kids to, starts at 12 noon this Saturday, April 23rd. Bring your own basket and put the running shoes on the kids!
In Upper Pottsgrove Township, at Heather Place Park, there is also an Easter Egg Hunt, sponsored by the Upper Pottsgrove Township Fire Company No. 1. Their egg hunt is from 11 AM to 1PM.
After the Easter Egg hunt, or maybe before the excitement of running through fields in search of candy and other goodies, you can take the kids to see the big fluffy rabbit for pictures at the Coventry Mall.
If you are looking for a great place to bring your family (and skip the cooking) on Easter Sunday, Sunnybrook Ballroom is having an Easter Brunch from 11AM to 2PM. They are serving a full buffet menu and Joe Horbach will provide the entertainment, playing Sunnybrook’s grand theater organ, “Ursula.”
Of course, if you aren’t celebrating Easter this weekend and are looking for something to do outside, you should click on the Parks link at the top of our page. In fact, even if you are celebrating Easter, a walk in the park is the perfect way to get rid of those extra calories the Easter bunny brings!
The Schuykill River Trail is just bursting with spring color and you can rent a free bicycle on Saturday at Pottstown’s Tri-County Bicycles on High Street through the Bike Pottstown program and check out the trail.
Have a wonderful (Pottstown) weekend and Happy Easter to those who celebrate it!
