Five Local Easter Weekend Events

A rundown of five things to do in Hamilton and Wenham for the coming weekend.

The weekend is here and Hamilton-Wenham Patch delivers you our “Get Out” weekend planner with a quick rundown on some weekend activity options in Hamilton and Wenham. Remember, if you have great ideas of your own that you want to share, please feel free to add them in the comments section at the bottom. Last week we had a great idea from a reader.


Where/When: ; Saturday, 10 a.m.

Why Go: It’s Easter weekend and there’s nothing that says Easter for the children more than an Easter egg hunt. The Easter Bunny will be there too along with music, egg-dying and other fun.

Pricing: $3 per basket for the Easter egg hunt


Where/When: ; Easter Sunday, 8 a.m.

Why Go: It’s a great Easter morning activity for the whole family, with a brunch followed by the arrival of the Easter Bunny and an Easter egg hunt. Reservations are required.

Pricing: Brunch at menu pricing.


Where/When: ; Saturday, 8:30 a.m.-1 p.m.

Why Go: It’s a great way to get rid of all that “stuff” that has accumulated around the house. In addition to the chance at shredding all sorts of old documents, you can donate books, videos, DVDs, albums and CDs to Got Books!, there will be a collection of golf clubs and golf balls for the U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Big Brother/Big Sister will be collecting bagged clothes, shoes, belts, pocketbooks and linens. Plus, tax-deductible receipts will be available for all donations. Save your electronics for next weekend’s collection.

Pricing: Shredding is free for the first box, $5 for all subsequent boxes. Donations of books, DVDs, clothes, shoes, etc. is all free.


Where/When: ; Friday, 11 a.m.

Why Go: It’s a great way for the kids to celebrate Earth Day at the end of April vacation week.  A family friendly-event for all ages, participants will create an animal collage out of recycled tissue paper, using Eric Carle's book “Animals, Animals” as an inspiration.

Pricing: Included in the price of museum admission


Where/When: ; Friday, 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

Why Go: It’s the last day for Hamilton residents to register before Town Meeting. Plus, it’s easy and free and it’s a right Americans have fought for and preserved for more than 200 years.

Pricing: Free
