Easter Fun Festival at the Historic Fort Wayne in Detroit

Detroit's historical military hub hosts the Easter Bunny and tons of springtime fun for Detroit families on March 31, 2018.

Would you like a little history to go with your spring fun? Then hop on over to the Historic Fort Wayne in Detroit on March 31, 2018, to get your fill of egg-citing Easter fun and historical shenanigans to boot.

This annual event, which is put on by the Detroit Parks & Recreation Department, kicks off with some fun Easter-themed games, including the Egg-mazing Race, and face painting that will get your kiddo into the Easter spirit.

Once your child gets painted up like a duck, lamb, bunny or other critter of their choice, he or she can search for colorful eggs hidden by the Easter Bunny. After they find them, they can actually meet their fluffy friend to collect prizes.

There will also be bounce houses, giveaways and much more. Oh, and it’s all on the grounds of the Historic Fort Wayne – a five-point artillery post on the Detroit River that dates back to 1840 – the perfect spot to give kids a little tour of the area’s history.

The Easter Fun Festival is slated for March 31, 2018 – taking place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. It is free and open to all residents of Detroit.
