What to do for Easter Fun for Everyone in Lexington for 2022?
Where are all the Easter Egg Hunts? Are there any Easter Bunny photo ops? Two years into the pandemic here in Lexington, KY, Easter celebrations will have far fewer restrictions than the past two years. Egg hunts are back, the Easter Bunny is hot on our trail, and there’s more to come!
When is Easter 2022? Easter Sunday falls late this year, on Sunday, April 17, but Easter Holiday festivities are kicking off as early as April Fool’s Day this year.
Below is a sampling of Easter-themed festivities happening in the Lexington, KY area for 2022. As always, confirm events and programming with the venue and organizers before planning to attend. Dates and times may change in accordance with evolving community guidelines.
The Easter Bunny stopped by Ada and Lo at 390 Southland Drive and dropped off all sorts of Easter goodies to share with their shoppers.
In early April, Fayette Mall is hosting Wendell the bunny in Dillard’s Court for photo ops with the Easter Bunny and your pet.
Our fuzzy friend also made it out to Hamburg and My Favorite Things on Old Rosebud with everything you’ll need to decorate your Easter table or build the most stylish Easter basket in town. (Stock up on the vanilla-flavored bunny marshmallows if you want to be the most popular guest at the Easter table with the most popular hostess gift. And don’t skip the Coton Colors Rabbit!)
Ruth Hunt Candy is expecting the Easter Bunny to visit from 2 pm to 4 pm on both Saturdays prior to Easter. Shop for your Easter basket and grab a few pics with the life-size bunny.
