There are so many cool ways to celebrate Easter in
Chicago with the kids that don't involve an over-priced breakfast
just to get a glimpse of an Easter Bunny impersonator. Here are
some options that come with a great price tag: they're free.
Hop over to Wicker Park for a hip egg hunt followed by a viewing
of the Easter Bunny-inspired movie Hop. 10 a.m.-1 p.m. March 30;

businesses, followed by a party in the town square where the Easter
Bunny himself will be on hand for pictures with his fans. 10 a.m.
