Easter Egg Hunts for the Entire Family
What’s more traditionally Easter-like than hunting for eggs? This year, there are quite a few place in town hosting their own unique hunts. So, get the family together, and go look for some Easter eggs at The Pointe in Ballwin, RiverChase in the Fenton area, Pere Marquette Lodge or even Gold Farm Equestrian Center in Wildwood.

Adults-Only Egg Hunt
If you’re in the mood to look for eggs without any kids, and perhaps with a glass of vino in hand, then you should head over to Persimmon Ridge Winery in Barnhart this Friday. The hunt starts when the sun is down, but there’s also a silent auction, raffle prizes and live music to keep you entertained. All proceeds benefit a local pet food pantry.

Bunnies On the Loose
If you’re in the mood to get moving this weekend, you don’t want to miss out on the Bunnies On the Loose 5k run, which starts and ends in Shrewsbury at Paul C. Wehner Park. While the main race starts at 8am, there’s also a kids-only race that begins at 9am. Each participant receives a T-shirt and may also choose to purchase accompanying bunny attire if he or she wants to get into the holiday spirit.

A Pet-Friendly Easter
Stray Rescue of Saint Louis is hosting a unique dog and cat adoption special this Easter weekend. Starting on April 17 and lasting through April 19, all cats and dogs who are six months or older are only $20 to adopt! In order to adopt either a canine or feline this holiday weekend, it’s important to have vet records, landlord approval and applications completed before you head down to the Pine St. shelter. There are so many furry companions to choose from!

Saint Louis Zoo Eggstravaganza
Even zoo animals like Easter festivities. Watch as the Saint Louis Zoo celebrates the holiday with its inhabitants and allows the animals to either hunt for eggs or play with egg piƱatas. Big cats, primates, birds and more will be taking part. Also, don’t forget to check out the different kids’ enrichment programs as well as chats with different zookeepers throughout the day.

All About the Blues
An annual event, the National Blues Museum partners with Christ Church Cathedral and Magdalene St. Louis for a Good Friday Blues concert, right in the heart of the church. This concert presents blues music in raw form featuring the likes of the Kingdom Brothers, Matthew Lesch, Beth Tuttle and more. The event is free, but donations to the museum or Magdalene St. Louis are welcome.
