It’s rain…it’s snow…no…it’s marshmallows flying from the sky! As an alternative to the Easter Egg Hunts, come check out these marshmallow drops around town. Don’t worry, the marshmallows aren’t to eat (although we can’t promise anything) – so come let the kids loose, gather as many marshmallows as possible and turn them in for prizes, candy and more!
Patterson Park (Grosse Pointe Park)
Saturday, April 4 @ 11:30 am
All children 10 years of age and under are invited to the Marshmallow Drop at Patterson Park. After the drop, children will exchange their marshmallow filled bags for goodie bags at the overhang near the splash pad. Each drop will have 5 Golden Eggs and those who find them will receive a special prize. The Easter Bunny will also be on hand for pictures along with costumed characters and pony cart rides.
