Easter Events

Easter is a wonderful time to spend with friends and family. Join us for our Easter events where we will have fun activities for everyone! 

Whether you celebrate by dyeing Easter eggs or just love eating all the chocolate candies, we would love to see you in our stores. 

Here are some fun facts about Easter:

  • “The White House Easter Egg Roll” event has been celebrated by the President of the United States and their families since 1878.
  • The first story of a rabbit (later named the “Easter Bunny”) hiding eggs in a garden was published in 1680.
  • Egg dyes were once made out of natural items such as onion peels, tree bark, flower petals, and juices.
  • 70% of Easter candy purchased is chocolate.
  • 76% of Americans think the ears of a chocolate bunny should be the first to be eaten.
