The Easter Bunny is back in town – and he’ll be unleashing a blizzard of marshmallows over southeast Michigan. Spring is in full swing, so ring in the season with fluffy white puffs of sugar and fun – as parks in Southfield, Trenton, Waterford, Wayne and Westland hold annual marshmallow drop events on March 25 and April 2, 2016.
Wayne County Parks
Once again, Wayne County Parks will be holding free back-to-back marshmallow drops on Friday, March 25, kicking off at 9 a.m. at Elizabeth Park in Trenton. Then, at 11 a.m., stop by Nankin Mills Park in Westland for more marshmallow madness. Make sure to show up and be ready to catch some sugary fluff and fun. Resist the temptation to eat these yummy concoctions, because they can be traded for neat prizes.
Anderson Ball Fields
Are you from Wayne County, but not in the Trenton or Westland area? Well, you’re in luck! There will also be a marshmallow drop event at 10 a.m. on Friday, March 25 at the Anderson Ball Fields in Wayne.
