Celebrate Easter, Celebrate Spring in Downtown Wheaton

 The Downtown Wheaton Association (DWA) is gearing up for Spring with their Celebrate Easter, Celebrate Spring event on Saturday, March 31, 2018. Children and parents alike can look forward to an Easter Egg Hunt and Easter Bonnet Contest as well as a visit from the Easter Bunny himself! The event takes place at Memorial Park in Downtown Wheaton from 10:00am to 11:00am.

The highlight of the day begins at 10:00am with an Easter Egg Hunt featuring 5,000 candy-filled eggs. Children of all ages are welcome to attend, and the park will be divided into age appropriate areas. Returning to the event this year: find the Golden Egg and receive a $5.00 Downtown Wheaton Association Gift Certificate. Six Golden Eggs will be hidden amongst the trees in Memorial Park. Find one and receive a $5 Downtown Wheaton Association gift certificate!

Immediately following the Easter Egg Hunt, boys and girls between the ages of 0 and 12 can show off their artistry in the Easter Bonnet Contest taking place at the band shell in Memorial Park. Prizes will be awarded for the most creative, artistic and original homemade designs in each age group. Judges for the Easter Bonnet Contest are Jodie Schillinger of Graham’s Fine Chocolates & Ice Cream, Kathleen Koziel from The Sipping Muse and a special guest judge.

The Easter Bunny himself will be available for pictures with his admirers throughout the event from 10:00am to 11:00am. Participation in Celebrate Easter, Celebrate Spring is FREE to the public.
