Tuesday April 15, 2014

easter weekend kansas cityIt's Easter Weekend!

Easter weekend is fast approaching, and we've got you covered with a list of Easter egg hunts in the Kansas City metro, including some around Kansas City but also in Johnson County and Missouri.

Zona Rosa Easter Parade

Don't miss the Zona Rosa Easter parade on Saturday, April 19th, from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm, which travels through the Town Center streets. All floats and vehicles welcome to participate in the parade, with registration. According to their site,

"This FREE community event features the Easter Bunny, a best dressed contest for the whole family featuring Spring/Easter finery, (the BEST DRESSED FAMILY wins $1,000!) a live performance by Mr. Stinky Feet, and much more!"

Kansas City Metro Road Races

In addition, I've also compiled a list of Kansas City 5ks, 10ks, and half/full marathons happening for the rest of the month of April. Even though the Rock the Parkway half and full marathon was this past weekend, hopefully you can still find a few races to run if the weather cooperates for the rest of the month!

If you have an event in April or beyond that you'd like me to promote, please email me at kansascity [at] aboutguide.com!
