Fun Ways to Celebrate Easter in the St. Louis Area.


Easter is a fun time for many children and families in St. Louis. Here's information on the top Easter egg hunts and other Easter events in the St. Louis area in 2014. If you are looking for brunch ideas on Easter Sunday, read my article on Where to Go for Easter Brunch in St. Louis.

Hare in the Air Egg Hunt

The annual Hare in the Air Egg Hunt is true to its name. That's because the Easter Bunny arrives by helicopter. The popular event begins at 10 a.m., on the campus of Logan College of Chiropractic. The egg hunt is divided into three age groups, with special prizes for each group. There will also be balloon artists and a petting zoo. Admission is free.
