This year Easter falls on MARCH 27th, Sunday. Most Egg Hunts and Festivals will fall as early as mid- March and most of the shindigs will occur during Palm Beach County school district's Spring Break. Easter Egg Hunts are generally geared for tots able to walk all the way up to about 12 years old. While we usually like to grab some close friends and head to a favorite park for a more intimate Egg Hunt, sometimes the thrill of the hunt at one of the bigger Egg Hunts just can't be missed!
We hope that you find our collection of over 15 different Miami Dade county Easter Egg Hunts helpful in choosing the right event for your family. If your children are too old (over 12) for a sponsored event, try some fun tween/teen South Florida ideas like a beach egg hunt or a flashlight hunt you organize yourself. There's no reason older kids and adults can't enjoy the holiday fun as well!
Broward Egg Hunts & Spring Fun abounds in 2016. The kids will be finishing off their Spring Break over Easter weekend this year and what a way to finish it off with fun and egg-citement! Family photos with the Bunny, egg hunts, and festivals are the norm for this time of year but in Broward there will be some interesting options!
For 2016, the Delray Fashion Week has really outdone itself! This year's events have so far been polished entertaining affairs with live music, dancers, dramatic lighting and more. If you've always wanted to be at the New York Fashion Week and just can't find the time or the money to attend, the Delray Fashion Week this year really gives that high fashion fun at an affordable price.
South Florida Finds was invited to a behind-the-scenes tour of the 4 haunted houses for the 2015 Fright Nights at the South Florida Fairgrounds. This spooky experience is recommended for children over the age of 12 years old and for adults. Since all children are different, parents with less squeamish children may be considering it for their under 12 year old child and parents of anxious teens may be wondering if they are "ready" yet.
It might not be easy to believe from the weather outside, but the official beginning of Autumn 2015 is already here in South Florida. The biggest annual fall events in South Florida are right around the corner. Just because South Florida is in the tropics and misses autumn colors and apple-picking doesn’t mean that we can't get a taste of fall fun! We do have our own way of celebrating this season. If you are itching to be pickin' there are several U-pick farms that will have veggies and strawberries to choose from...just no apples.
Burns, scrapes, falls, cuts...not an ideal trip to the playground with the family. While accidents happen, there are some areas of the playground that are truly red flag places for parents. Any playground that you visit should be quickly inspected and assessed before allowing your children to play on it. County, city, and state agencies do provide maintenance to parks. Cleaning, repairing, painting and landscaping all fall under their care. Realistically, they cannot be 100% on top of all of their facilities.
Ever hear of a Purple Gallinule? Taken in a vista filled with fireflag and sunbathing turtles? If you're a nature lover, then Wakhodahatchee Wetlands in west Delray Beach is a must! Birders and photographers flock to this reclaimed water (man-made) wetlands to take in all the wonderful wildlife and fauna.
We've attended this for almost 10 years and we seem to see more and more people every year. Arriving earlier ensures your battle with the other trick-o-treaters won't be so bad. You are sharing the avenue with the regular restaurant patrons so please remember to be polite.
