There are a plethora of fun & free (for the most part) Easter activities in Nashville on Saturday, April 3rd. I’d like to think we can make it to all of them, but I’m not holding my breath. It’s just been so beautiful here that we’ve loved being outside!
Here is the schedule that I’ve found. Please comment below if you know of an event I haven’t listed:
Red Caboose Park
The annual Bellevue Egg Hunt sponsored by Bellevue Baptist Church is at the fabulous Red Caboose Park at 11am on April 3rd. (I always say it’s worth living in Bellevue just for this park! There is no charge for any of the activites (including face painting, temporary tattoos and lots of eggs) or snacks.
Egg hunt times are as follows:
11:15: Toddlers through age 3
11:30: 4 & 5 year olds
11:45: Kindergarten through 2nd grade
12:00: 3rd – 6th grades
Bass Pro Shop
Easter egg hunt from 2-3 pm on both April 3 & 4 for ages 8 and under. You can also get free pics with the Easter Bunny from 11-3 on the same days AND make Easter decorations beginning at Noon. Visit Bass Pro Shop for more Easter events
Cheekwood Botanical Gardens
From Cheekwood’s website: Celebrating the return of spring, Cheekwood’s Spring Art Hop will be held on Saturday, March 22 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Families will enjoy Easter egg hunts and visit with the Easter bunny during this popular holiday event.
Among Spring Art Hop performers will be The Nashville Public Library’s Puppet Truck, magician Rodney Kelley, and Spring Songs with Rachel Summer. The day-long events and activities will include face painting, garden scavenger and Easter egg hunts, community painting, balloon artists and crazy Easter hats.
This event is free to all Cheekwood members. Non-member adults are $10 and children under 18 are admitted free. Call 353-9827 for more information.
Remeber – Cheekwood is FREE this weekend if you’re a Bank of America customer, so this event would be free also!
For the first time in 2010, Belmont Mansion (1900 Belmont Blvd.) is hosting an Easter Egg hunt and petting zoo from 1-3pm.
The Bunnies are Back! I’ve never been, but I’ve heard this has been a Nashville tradition for years and has some of the most extravagant exhibits with live bunnies. They’re located in Belle Meade (5207 Harding Road) with the giant Peter Pan on the sign.
