Celebrate Easter in the Branch with customized family programs offered by Farmers Branch Parks & Recreation during April 6-12. The egg is thought to symbolize and represent new life and joy. Easter is an essential tradition for many families around the world. This weekend we’re offering a Home Hunt or Drive-By Egg Hunt for children to experience. In addition, The Branch Connection is giving away free curbside boxed meals for Ages 50 and up only.

Drive-By Egg Hunt
We’ll be decorating the Farmers Branch Historical Park, Farmers Branch Aquatics Center, The Branch Connection and Recreation Center windows with colorful Easter Eggs. We encourage you to cut out and decorate your windows with Easter eggs too. Take a drive through your neighborhood and to our facilities, and enjoy hunting down the eggs you can see from your car! Take a photo of your Easter eggs in your window and share it on social media with the hashtag #EasterInTheBranch by April 8 to be featured on our page and enter a drawing for a prize!
