Fun Easter Events for 2019 in Wilmington DE
As the winter comes to a close and spring arrives, it’s fun to get out and enjoy the nice weather. A perfect match with the warmer weather is Easter, one of the most fun holidays for people of all ages. Before the official day on April 21, we wanted to highlight some of the fun Easter events for 2019 in Wilmington, DE.
A fun Easter tradition in this part of the country, kids will be able to hop aboard the Easter Bunny Express at the Wilmington & Western Railroad. The Easter Bunny Express will be a 1½ hour round trip train ride to Ashland, as the Easter Bunny will be a passenger and more than happy to take pictures with the kids aboard. All kids will also receive a special Easter treat on the train. The Easter Bunny Express will be making trips on April 13, 14, 19 and 20 this month.
Auburn Heights Easter Egg Hunt
An event all of the kids look forward to each Easter, the annual Auburn Heights Easter Egg Hunt returns once again for its ninth consecutive year on April 19-20. A maximum of 200 kids will be allowed to go on the hunt each day, as participants are divided into age groups to ensure fun. The event will also offer free popcorn and fun rides throughout the day.
Bunnyfest at the Brandywine Zoo
While kids are excited to see the Easter Bunny this year, it might not compare to seeing a real bunny during Bunnyfest at the Brandywine Zoo. Along with a fun day at the zoo, kids can also get their faces painted, make fun Easter crafts and go on another Easter Egg hunt throughout the zoo.
