I'll spare you the egg inspired puns, and just cut to the chase. There are a lot of opportunities for the family to get out and hunt Easter eggs this week. Here's our quick list:

Head To The Park

At John Stiff Park on Friday, starting at 6 PM, Amarillo Parks and Rec will be having the Amarillo Egg Dash. It is for kids age 0-12, and is free. The Easter Bunny will be making an appearance. You can get more info at this link.

Easter Eggs and Trampolines

If running through an empty grass lot as fast as possible to snag eggs isn't enough excitement for your kiddo, there's always the Toddler Hop-N-Hunt at AMP'D Amarillo. While this isn't a free event, it does give the kids (ages 5 and under) something to do post hunt. Instead of immediately gorging themselves on half melted chocolates, they'll get some jump time. Easter Bunny is also expected to be making an appearance, and you can snag photos. It will be from 10 AM until 12 PM tomorrow (3/31/21).

They'll follow up on April 1 starting at 6 PM for kids ages 6 - 12. Here's a link.

Block Party

If you're looking for something beyond just the mad dash for eggs, Calvary Baptist Church is having an egg hunt and block party. It's going to be on Saturday from 3 PM - 5 PM. Their Easter egg hunt is for ages baby - 5th grade. You can get more info at this link.

Bouncers and Food Trucks

Greenways Easter Eggstravaganza is Saturday starting at 11 AM. They'll have bouncers, food trucks, and egg decorating along with the hunt.

Say You're From Amarillo Without Saying You're From Amarillo

Amarillo is a pretty quirky place. We've got the Big Texan, the weird signs, and (obviously) the famed Cadillac Ranch. But more than that, there's a distinct culture of close-knit community, eccentrics, a thriving arts scene, and much more.

The point is, living in Amarillo is a unique experience. Because of that, it's really pretty easy to tell who's a native or a long-time resident. And I can prove it.

Here's a couple of ways you can say you're from Amarillo.....without saying you're from Amarillo.
