One of the biggest events of the Easter season — the annual Marshmallow Drop & Moon Glow — takes place 7-9 p.m. Friday, April 15, at the Genoa Township Athletic Fields, 2911 Dorr Road, Howell.
In addition to being the biggest, the event is likely one of the most unique. It’s an evening, outdoor celebration of spring for kids up to 8, featuring a flyover by a helicopter that will drop thousands of marshmallows, followed by a night-time Easter egg hunt. Kids need to bring a sharp eye and their own flashlights.
Attendance is limited to 1,000 kids, so be sure to register soon. Click here.
Brinner with the Easter Bunny
All the popular Breakfast with the Easter Bunny are sold out, so the Howell Nature Center has added a Brinner with the Easter Bunny program. It begins at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 26, and will feature breakfast for an early bird dinner, including sausage and all the trimmings. Children will get to visit with the Easter Bunny, receive a special gift, and enjoy an old-fashioned Easter egg hunt. Click here to register.
