Celebrate Easter in Key West

Key West offers special and unique ways to do everything, and Easter is no exception. This year’s events will put a smile on faces young and old, and some even support the environment!

On Saturday, April 7, the Key West Library will hold its annual egg hunt at 1 p.m. in the Children and Young Adults section. Kids up to age 18 can participate, and there will also be candy, face painting, and crafts.

Combining Easter fun and care for nature, the Key West Botanical Garden will hold The Great Egg Hunt on April 7 to kick off this year’s Migration Mania. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will include many “bird-themed” activities such as a children’s egg hunt (featuring 7,000 eggs), live bird shows, bird crafts, bird face painting, and a puppet show. 

Four different egg hunts, divided by age, will be held throughout the day starting at 10:15, 11:00, 12:30 and 1:15. There is also a bounce house for kids to work off any extra energy they may have left.

If you happen to miss the April 7 event, they will be doing it again on April 14. Admission is free for members and $5 for non-member adults and children. This fun, family-friendly event is a great way to learn about and care for the migrating birds that come to our area.

For a more relaxing time, head to The Gardens Hotel on April 8 for Easter Sunday Jazz in the Garden from 5 to 8 p.m. Lenore Troia will provide an afternoon of great music and entertainment, featuring songs from her new CD. The New York Times List called The Gardens Hotel “The Prettiest Hotel in Key West,” and it makes a perfect setting for this wonderful music.

Living on Key West makes everything we do feel extra-special, so you’re sure to enjoy whatever event you choose; there is always something fun happening in Key West! I have been welcoming new neighbors into our island paradise community for over 25 years.
