Easter seems to have dropped in early this year on March 31st, but our ever-popular Laguna Beach Easter event people are ready and waiting for the hordes of kids. Here’s a quick look at Laguna Beach Easter Egg hunts, Laguna Beach Easter Egg coloring events and Easter brunches on Easter Sunday
Sunday, March 31st, Annual Laguna Beach Easter Egg Coloring Event – 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., Madison Square Garden & Cafe, North Laguna Beach
Owner Jon Madison is at it again with Laguna Beach’s most famous Easter Egg Coloring Event. This year, he’s planning to boil up about 200-300 eggs, and provides all the stencils, colors, and dipping sauce any kid might need for that masterpiece egg. As Madison’s is one of the dog-friendliest places in town, you’re welcome to pack up kids and dogs and head on down for some great (if a little chaotic) fun. (You might have to hep your dogs with the Easter egg dipping … it’s that whole opposable thumb issue, poor things.)
Sunday, March 31st, Annual Laguna Beach Easter Egg Hunt – 1:00 p.m., Laguna Beach High School baseball fields
For more than 50 years, the American Legion has been finding a way to produce THE Easter Bunny for all the Laguna Beach kids. (No kidding! These people have serious connections.) Come on down at 1:00 Easter Sunday for this can’t miss Easter Egg Hunt. Kids 9 years of age and and younger are invited to bring empty Easter baskets and participate in the free activities. Arrive early for pictures with the Easter Bunny.
