Easter Bunny
What makes kids even happier than no longer having to wear a winter coat? The sheer joy of seeing the Easter Bunny! On April 16th at Bensenville Village Hall you and your family can take a photo with Peter Rabbit himself. 

The Elmhurst City Centre is also setting up its own special Easter bunny event, the Bunny Scavenger Hunt. Throughout Downtown Elmhurst, there will be 100 stuffed Easter bunnies hidden that you can find and turn in for prizes. There are over 100 prizes so don’t miss your chance to take home something special.

Activities
