The Birth Haven Easter Guide: Hoppin' Around Lexington!

Easter came early this year and you're running around trying to throw together a quick and fun activity for the family with little to no time left to waste. The Birth Haven decided to step in and help you out!

We have a composed a list of great ways to spend Easter with friends and family in and around Lexington

If you want to brave the crowds, you have til Sunday to get your pictures with the Easter Bunny at the Fayette Mall . You can skip the lines with a Fast Pass and you also have the option to preorder your photo packages. If you are closer to Lexington Green, hop upstairs to Travis Clark Photography studio, visit their live bunnies while you wait for your turn with the Easter Bunny. 

As parents we tend to put immense pressure on ourselves to cover all the bases when it comes to celebrations and holiday events. This Easter there are so many options all weekend long in the Lexington area that you'll have plenty to keep your little ones busy and take part in the fun with them. 

On Saturday March 26th at 2:00pm, take the family for a ride on the Bluegrass Railway Easter Bunny Train. 

The Easter Bunny will come around the aisles to pass out hugs and take pictures with all the children and you can enjoy the views of Lexington in bloom along the way.

Depending on where you are located, there are Easter egg hunts spread out around the neighborhoods on Saturday morning into the early afternoon. 

Get an early start Saturday at 9am at the South Elkhorn Christian Church for crafts with the kids, an easter egg hunt and games. 

Hill n Dale Christian Church will be hosting a pancake breakfast followed by an easter egg hunt at 9am.

The Birth Haven suggests heading over to Lakeview Park in Frankfort for the Easter Egg Roll tomorrow morning at 10:00am. 

Enjoy the day with face painting, photos and games! Dye Easter eggs with the kids and enter the whole family into the Easter Egg Roll contest! The admission for this event is a suggested donation of a new or gently used book which will be passed along to the Reach Out and Read Program to promote literacy in Franklin County.  

If you are in Richmond, Richmond Parks and Rec are hosting their 36th Annual Easter Eggstravaganza. This is a free event, open to the public and there are back to back egg hunt time slots for different age groups. 

We understand that sometimes it's difficult to get the family up and out of the house early in the day and that means missing out on some of the fun. If this sounds like you, don't worry! From 1pm to 4pm on Saturday, join Keeneland Entertainment Center for face painting, cookie decorating, a petting zoo, pony rides and an Easter egg hunt at 2:30pm. RSVP to this event here

From all of us at The Birth Haven, have a very Happy Easter!
