Spring break is coming to an end for lots of children in the area, so parents should give them the chance to go out with a bang. There are a number of egg hunts this weekend, plus a kiddie disco and a Peeps contest. And for those who don’t celebrate the holiday, we have plenty on offer for you as well.
