EASTER EVENTS

Valley Forge & Montgomery County

With its accent on the great outdoors and the blossoming of spring, Easter in Montgomery County is full of family friendly events. Take a "peep" at what's going on around Montco, including egg hunts, performances, special events and Easter Bunny appearances on the railroad, at the zoo and in our area malls.

The Easter Bunny scurried into area malls back on February 26, ready for fans to line up for pictures in their best springtime duds. Hours are generally 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. until March 26, and most malls accept appointments online. But he's also hopping all over Montgomery County this month. The following guide will help in tracking him down.
