Delavan puts a twist on all things Easter, offering the traditional, but also having a few surprises, too.
The first surprise is the Fabric Egg Hunt at Aram Public Library the entire month of April! Nothing like whetting the whistle for a good ol’ Easter Egg Hunt! Kids are invited to find and count all the fabric eggs hidden at the library and take their answer to the Children’s Desk for a special treat. Everyone that participates will also have their name put in a drawing to win a quilt!
Saturday, April 15 brings the annual Easter Egg Hunt in Phoenix Park at 9:45am. Always an egg-citing time, it’s not to be missed! (Did you catch that egg word pun?!) Follow it up with breakfast with the Easter Bunny at Delavan United Methodist Church across the street – can’t get any more convenient than that! Oh wait, I should say instead about how egg-ceptionally close it is!
Breakfast with the Easter Bunny is from 8am-12pm and is hosted by the Delavan Lions Club. The menu includes scrambled eggs, sausage, pancakes, biscuits & gravy, juice, milk and coffee. All the yummy things needed to give energy for the Easter Egg Hunt if you go to the breakfast first, or to rebuild energy if you come afterwards. Tickets are $7/adults, $5/ children 5-10, and free for kids 4 & under. Tickets are available at the door or at Stinebrink’s Piggly Wiggly. Don’t forget to have your picture taken with the Easter Bunny! Many great raffle prizes will also be available and proceeds from the Breakfast benefit the Special Olympics of Walworth County.
If you’re thinking Easter Egg Hunts are only for the younger generation, like those 3 feet tall and less, then think again! Staller Estate Winery has an adult Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 15, 11am-6pm. “Easter Dusting” is what they call it: you search for an egg – limit one per person, and you must be 21 years or older, which right there tells you it’s gotta be good being for adults only! – then trade in the egg you find for a prize. Three guesses what it might be since you’re doing this at a winery or at least I’m hoping it’s wine-related. The “dusting” comes in to play in that while some eggs are easy to find, others maybe not so much, so they say to come prepared to help “dust” the store in search of your egg! New twist on Spring cleaning, I guess! (Think you could come to my house when you’re done as it could use some Spring cleaning…)
So now your Easter basket is full and it’s time to think about filling your stomach with an egg-stravaganza of food choices, which can be found at none other than an Easter Brunch, of course! You can go out to one or both of the locations shown below or Lake Lawn Resort is offering “Easter Dinner to Go” – just pre-order by no later than noon on April 12 by calling 262.725.9155. So many choices…so much food… what a truly egg-cellent problem to have!
Delavan is egg-sactly where you want to be for Easter, so be there! Don’t make me use another egg word pun…
