Weekend Eggs-travaganzas

The last round of snow and ice should be a distant memory when it’s time for the Great Lakes Bay Region to put on its Easter bonnet and host some entertaining events, offer up delicious brunches, and make some tasty treats.

Celebrate and Seek

Trying to decide what to do this weekend? The tradition of decorating Easter fountains started in Germany more than 200 years ago, and Frankenmuth offers a peek into the festivities through April 10. Or, maybe check out the showing of Passion of the Christ at the Temple Theatre on Friday, March 25. On Saturday, March 26, just enjoy the coming of spring at Chippewa Nature Center for Spring Exploration Days, or head over to the Broadway Theatre in Mt. Pleasant for a showing of The Princess Bride.

Don’t forget the eggs this weekend! Take the kiddos over to one of many events throughout the region. Head out to Heritage Park in Frankenmuth, Life Church in Kochville Township, Messiah or Chippewa Nature Center in Midland, the Finch Fieldhouse on CMU’s campus in Mt. Pleasant, or the courthouse in Old Town Saginaw for a few hunts and egg drops the whole family can enjoy.

Fancy and Full

Ham, mashed potatoes, and lemon meringue pie … oh my! There’s no telling what scrumptious menus you’ll find at one of these amazing Easter Sunday brunch or buffet hot spots this weekend: Grand Ballroom at the DoubleTree by Hilton Bay City-Riverfront or Krzysiak’s House Restaurant in Bay City, Bavarian Inn Lodge or Zehnder’s in Frankenmuth, Apple Mountain in Freeland, Great Hall Banquet & Convention Center in Midland, Quarry Grill at Bucks Run Golf Course or Riverwood Resort in Mt. Pleasant, and Rainmakers Bar & Grill or Golden Glow Ballroom in Saginaw.

Bountiful Baskets

Some of the fun for the little ones might be finding it, but the best part by far of an Easter basket is finding all of the surprises that are waiting under the cellophane wrapper and hiding in the grass. Haven’t filled up your basket yet? Stop by St. Laurent Brothers in Bay City, Frankenmuth Fudge Kitchen in Frankenmuth, Heather ’n Holly in Midland, or Kilwins in Mt. Pleasant for all kinds of unique, special treats.
