Many (many!) Easter egg hunts and events are happening this weekend, and you can also go soak up the early bits of spring at beautiful places like Japan House or any of our forest preserves
Families can choose from a myriad of events and activities this week in Champaign-Urbana
We have many an event to choose from this weekend – the first of which we’ll make sure to point out is Engineering Open House! This is the first in-person Engineering Open House since 2019 and we are so here for it. Bring on the Tesla Coil Concert and allllll the STEM related fun this weekend, if you can.
All the egg hunts we know of in Champaign-Urbana are in one list for you and we cannot even wrap our heads around how many there are to choose from! It is a busy, busy week in chambana.
Last but not least, you may choose to go stroll the gardens at Japan House as cherry blossom watch is in full swing and you can keep an eye on the blossoms as they grow into all their glory in the next few days. This season goes quickly, so watch the Japan House Facebook page (and hey, odds are good that chambanamoms will be featuring when they’re in full bloom, too, because we LOVE cherry blossoms).
