Top Easter Events For Kids In Houston

April 11, 2014 8:00 AM

Easter comes at the time of year when the weather begins to warm and outdoor activities become common, which is why so many Easter events occur outside. There are many places to take your kids for Easter fun this year, whether you want to go to a church event, an event held in a park or an egg hunt anywhere else. While your kids will want to hunt for eggs, you won’t have to search to find fun Easter events for them.
