Easter is kind of late this year, taking place on Sunday April 20, 2014. Plenty of time to enjoy all the holiday EGGS-cellent adventures in the Charlotte Metro area!

What better way to celebrate than a few family friendly egg hunts and visits with the Easter Bunny, of course! And, best of all, many are free!
