You don’t have to hide the same plastic eggs in your backyard this year. Whether your family prefers sunrise Easter egg hunts, intricate egg dying projects, or a leisurely stroll in the gardens with bunnies, there’s something new and exciting in Texas for everyone this Easter weekend. Even if you don’t feel like doing the Bunny Hop, you can still try a new egg-decorating technique or explore a new trail. Get outside this Easter weekend and try something new!
Here are some of our favorite ways to celebrate Easter in Texas:
Easter Egg Hunts
If there are children at your house, everyone’s main concern at Easter is the big egg hunt. Big eggs, small eggs, eggs filled with candy, brightly-colored eggs—nothing says Easter quite like a hoard of children running across the lawn looking for eggs. With this in mind, don’t miss the Kerrville Easter Egg Hunt, the hunt at Lake Bob Sandlin State Park, the Georgetown Eggstravaganza, or find one in your area. The kids will thank you!
Easter at the Dallas Arboretum
One of the most popular Easter celebrations takes place at the Dallas Arboretum each year. Activities span multiple days, from children’s crafts and photos with the Easter Bunny on Friday, to sack races, live bunnies, and the Bunny Hop on Saturday and Sunday. All the spring florals will be in full bloom this weekend, so make sure to stop by.
Balloons Over Horseshoe Bay Resort
Watch hot air balloons take to the sky every evening in the Texas Hill Country this Easter at the Horseshoe Bay Resort. This one-of-a-kind event features live music, egg hunts, arts & crafts, a magic show, and so much more. Book a room at the resort, and you can enjoy a full weekend of fun, as the resort offers special events Friday-Sunday and multiple balloon flights!
Feeling crafty? Try your hand at creating these novelty eggs! The time-honored Texas tradition of creating Wendish eggs goes back generations. These brightly-colored scratched eggs are created using dye and tiny scratches to create extremely detailed artworks on the surface of the egg. This method takes longer than the traditional American way of dying eggs, but the results are breathtaking.
Easter Hill Country Tour
Get outside and enjoy the fresh air this Easter with the Easter Hill Country Tour! This brisk bicycle route will lead you through the finest scenery the hill country has to offer, including breathtaking views from the hilltops. If that sounds intimidating, don’t worry—you can select a course difficulty based on your fitness level and previous cycling experience. The route includes a sunrise Easter service on Sunday morning for those so inclined.
