I’m thinking positive: the snow will have melted by Friday! You’ll still have to bundle up and bring your boots, but don’t let that keep you from a number of free community Easter egg hunts going on this weekend. Here are our picks this coming Friday & Saturday or, if you’d rather skip the slush, there are more free and low cost indoor ideas on our weekend Family Fun Calendar.
