The birds are chirping, the temps are rising and the Easter Bunny is making plans to hop through Ellicottville this weekend!

Enjoy Ellicottville’s village-wide egg hunt now through Saturday, April 15! Take part in the Ellicottville Egg-stravaganza by visiting participating stores that have hidden Easter eggs. Each egg has a prize or discount inside.

Take part in an always-fun holiday tradition— an Easter egg hunt! Bring the family to the Village Park for the EVL Volunteer Fire Department’s annual Easter Egg Hunt. The festivities will take place Saturday, April 15 at 1 p.m. In the event of rain, the egg hunt will move to the fire hall.

Don’t forget to stock up on Easter goodies at Watson’s Chocolates on Washington Street, where you can choose from chocolate bunnies, foil wrapped chocolate eggs, jelly beans and much more. Milk, dark, white and orange chocolate varieties await—you can also buy pre-made baskets full of the most popular Easter treats.

Need ideas for Easter activities to do this weekend? Color eggs. Decorate a tree branch with some Easter- themed ornamanents. Plan you Easter brunch or dinner.

No matter how you spend the countdown to Easter, you’re sure to have a great time! Put on your pastels, think spring and have a very Happy Easter!
