Cities, towns across western Mass celebrating Easter with holiday-themed activities


(WWLP) – Easter is just one day away, which means towns and cities around western Massachusetts are celebrating with holiday-themed activities despite Sunday’s wet weather.

Easter egg hunts are taking place across the state Saturday, including in Holyoke, West Springfield, and at Six Flags New England in Agawam.

In West Springfield, the annual egg hunt was relocated to the middle school due to the weather. The event is for city residents only, and kicks off at 9:45 a.m. with a chance for kids to meet the Easter Bunny. Kids from ages one to 7-years-old will have a chance to hunt for eggs starting at 10:30 a.m.

The location of the annual Holyoke egg hunt was also changed due to weather. The activities began at 10 a.m. at the Holyoke Heritage State Park Visitor Center and Holyoke Merry Go Round.

Toddlers to 12-year-old will be able to participate in an egg hunt along with face painting, pony rides, pictures with the Easter Bunny and more. Children must be pre-registered to participate in the egg hunt. 

Guests who visit Six Flags New England Saturday between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. will also have the chance to participate in Easter festivities. Each guest who goes to the park during that time will be given a scratch-off card that could win them instant prizes.
