Spring is a great time of year for so many reasons: mild weather, a weeklong break to celebrate said mild weather and of course, Easter. To the young adult and single Houstonians, Easter may just be another reason for a day off work. But if you happen to be a parent, you know that Easter in Houston means candy, baskets, photos with bunnies and Easter egg hunts. You can find everything you need to make this Easter a great one for the whole family with this list of Easter activities. Enoy!
