With the return of spring comes an abundance of blooming flowers, picnics and, best of all, Easter celebrations galore. Here’s where you can celebrate Easter in Iowa this year.
Enjoy good, old-fashioned Easter fun at Prairie Patch Farm for its annual Easter Llama & His Peeps celebration. Attendees can get unique spring photos with Easter Llama and feed the “Goat Bunnies” too. Families can visit any time from March 28 through April 3.
Atlantic Rising along with Atlantic Parks and Recreation and Atlantic Coca-Cola Bottling will be hosting the “Hoppy Easter” celebration.

On Saturday, April 3, visitors will be able to drive through Sunnyside Park to see all the eggs and vote for their favorite.
Hop by the Linn County Fair Ground Easter Egg Hunt for some fun times on March 28 at noon. Bring the kids (up to 10 years old) and a canned good item. Each child will be able to hunt for Easter eggs and will get a prize at the end.
The Spring Celebration Market will be held the day before Easter, and the market will offer pre-order and drive-through options. The market will also celebrate spring via fresh produce, decadent local options and other seasonally-infused flavors that pay homage to the spirit of Atlantic.

The GPS Egg Hunt will take place on Sunday, March 28, from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. at Ewing Park.

And for each correct location that they find, they will get to pick up a small prize to take home with them too.
