Marshmallow Drop Events in Metro Detroit

Trade in your Easter egg hunt for these marshmallow drop events this spring.

The Easter Bunny is back in town and he’ll be unleashing a blizzard of marshmallows over metro Detroit instead of Easter eggs. Although Easter Egg Hunts and Bunny Brunches are still as popular as ever, your children will enjoy doing something a little out of the box this Easter, such as watching marshmallows drop above from a helicopter.

Spring is in full swing, so ring in the season with fluffy white puffs of sugar and fun at these local events. Some even offer other family-friendly fun to do while you’re there.

Check out our online calendar for even more events and fun things to do in metro Detroit with your kids.
