Springtime is full of lovely reasons to celebrate, from new blooms to the smell of fresh rain. Easter in Paducah is just one of many ways to spend time with the family this year and enjoy the new season.
2017 Easter Egg Dash
Bring the kids out on the evening of Tuesday, April 11th for a free Easter egg hunt. Children 10 and under will be split into their age groups, then race to find over 15,000 candy-filled eggs scattered across Noble Park Baseball Fields. No Easter is complete without an egg hunt, and this excellent community event is happening right next door to Chip Wynn Motors.
Spend Easter weekend getting your hands dirty with some traditional Easter egg decorating. There are so many ways to get artistic with eggs, from watercolors to glitter to temporary tattoos. Take a trip to the craft store and pick out your tools, then spend the afternoon making your egg-shaped masterpieces.
Nothing says Easter morning like an Easter basket filled with treats. Skip the store-bought version this year, and make custom Easter baskets for your friends and family. Whether you make it sports themed or build the actual basket out of boxes of candy, your recipient is sure to appreciate the thoughtful, personalized gift.
Yes, this is a thing! And while quilting might be seen as “lame,” this museum certainly isn’t. It’s basically an art museum, but for quilts! You’ll see patterns old and new and learn new things about quilting.

Take a stroll along the riverwalk for some beautiful views. You’ll not only get a view of the river, but there’s also an old steam engine locomotive that located by the riverwalk, so you’ll get a chance to see a piece of history.
