BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — Today the Louisiana State University Rural Life Museum is celebrating the cultural tradition that surrounds Easter and egg hunting in Louisiana.
From 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., children, ages two to nine, will be able to participate in egg dyeing demonstrations, the ancient tradition of egg paquing (known as knocking or boxing), old-fashioned spoon races, and of course, egg hunting.
The Easter Bunny will be on hand for photo opportunities and a prize will be given for the prettiest Easter bonnet.
Children will also enjoy old-fashioned games, a jelly bean count, music and storytelling. Lemonade and cookies will be available for purchase. Tickets are very limited for this event, so call the museum quickly to guarantee your family's participation.
