Easter eggs, Easter bunnies, fossils, yappy hour and more!
Making weekend plans? Check out these 5 things to do this weekend in Cape Coral:
Easter Bunny Trail
Thursday: This is the first year the Easter Bunny Trail event at Mike Greenwell’s Bat-A-Ball & Family Fun Park will be held at night. Organizers say this new time will give them less competition with other events, and it’s much cooler. “It’s always so hot, and our Easter Bunny is always melting,” says Dana Waters, who is organizing the event. “This way it will be much cooler.” There will be sponsors at each mini golf hole handing out candy and eggs. For more information, please call (239) 574-4386. Free for children ages 12 and younger. *Please bring donations of pet food for Helping Paws. 5pm-8pm
