I’m not very good at paying attention to holidays, probably because I don’t have children. The only way I know which holiday is approaching is usually by the displays of candy at the grocery store – Halloween to Christmas, Christmas to Valentine’s Day, Valentine’s Day to Easter, and so on. The marshmallow Peeps are out, along with the jelly beans and Cadbury Creme Eggs, and so Easter must be on its way.
And for those of you that DO have children, that means Easter Egg Hunts. You have a few to choose from in north Seattle this year – and North Seattle Sarah has you covered on what to do.
Wallingford: The Wallingford Center presents their annual Easter Egg Hunt featuring…wait for it…The Bubbleman! The celebration will be Saturday, April 7th at the Wallingford Center (1818 N 45th Street) and will go from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. The Bubbleman begins performing at 9 a.m., and the egg hunt takes place at 10 a.m. From 10 a.m. to noon there will also be face painting, crafts, and a chance to meet the Easter Bunny.
