Megga-Egga Easter Hunt at Jungle Island

On Saturday, April 11 and Sunday, April 12, 2020, head to Jungle Island and take part in the “egg-citing” Megga-Egga Easter Hunt! In addition to the egg hunts, there will be goodie bags for kids, arts and crafts, music, playgrounds, wildlife shows, adventure activities and (of course!) appearances by the Easter Bunny himself. Children will love Jungle Island’s new Treewalk Village, a fun-filled attraction with different tree houses, 8-foot-tall hammocks, nets, wood bridges, slides, obstacle courses and more. Tickets are priced at $49.95 per adult ages 11 and up, and $29.99 per child ages 3-10. Children 2 and under are free.

Locavore Brunch by Taste of Redland

Head south to Miami’s farmlands for a farm-to-table style Easter brunch on Sunday, April 12, 2020, from Noon to 3 p.m. This ticketed Locavore Brunch, which is hosted by Taste of Redland, is a walkaround dining event that features a bevy of food stations from local hotspots. In terms of food, diners can expect everything from seafood, carving and dessert stations to fruit, specialty egg stations, mimosas with freshly squeezed local juices and more. Adding to the allure, there will be live entertainment, including performances by legendary singer Maryel Epps. Tickets are priced at $99 per adult and $35 for children ages 7-13. Children 6 and under are free.

Dino Egg Safari at Zoo Miami

Take your kids to Zoo Miami, and join Miami’s largest and most environmentally friendly egg hunt! Taking place on both Saturday, April 11, and Sunday, April 12, this event invites children 12 and under to hunt for more than 100,000 eco-friendly, 100-percent recycled eggs, all filled with palm oil-free and sustainable palm oil candy. On both days, young children can take pictures with the Easter Bunny, check out the zoo animal exhibits, listen to music, see performances by Steve Gryb and The Pier Piper of Percussion, play games and win prizes. This event will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday. Entry to Dino Egg Safari is included with zoo admission or zoo membership.

Egg Hunt at The Little Farm

On Saturday, April 11, 2020, The Little Farm, located just south of Cutler Bay, will celebrate Easter with its Annual Charity Egg Hunt. Divided into two-hour increments that start at 10 a.m., 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., this egg hunt will include a petting farm, pony rides, a farm tour and an Easter egg hunt. You can bring your own snacks, or buy hot dogs, chips and soda from onsite vendors at the event. Make sure you bring a basket to hold all your family’s collected eggs—and a camera to document the memories! Reservations are required, and entry is priced at $12 per adult and $22 per child. No coolers allowed.

Eggsplorers at Fairchild: Egg Hunt & Breakfast

On Easter Sunday, take your kids to an egg hunt at the whimsical Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden! Kids will be divided into two different age groups, 1-5 and 6-12, and all participants will need to sign up for a specific time slot ahead of time. From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., kids will get to hunt for thousands of goody-filled eggs in the Montgomery Palmetum, get their face painted, color, learn about gardening and more. Don’t worry, parents, there’s something for you, too! From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., you can get unlimited mimosas from the mimosa bar and breakfast from Glasshouse Café. The egg hunt is included with admission to Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. The mimosa bar is priced at $15 per person 21+, and breakfast is priced a la carte.

Hang Out with the Easter Bunny at the Mall

Every year, the Easter Bunny hops around some of Miami’s most popular shopping malls to pose for photos with the little ones. Dolphin Mall always has a fun setup, and at The Falls Shopping Center and Miami International Mall, you can even bring your dog to take a photo with the Easter Bunny. On select days, the Easter bunny will lead kids through different games and arts and crafts activities, and on some weekends, they can have breakfast or brunch at the mall with him, too.

Dine Out for Easter Brunch on South Beach

Spend Easter Sunday on the water when you reserve a table for brunch at one of South Beach’s top restaurants. If you’re on Lincoln Road, celebrate Easter with bottomless drinks and a decadent French-, Japanese- and Peruvian-fusion meal on Juvia’s lush rooftop, or a Southern-inspired feast (chicken and waffles, anyone?) at Yardbird Southern Table & Bar. Make it a Mexican-inspired Easter with a poolside brunch at Diez y Seis at the Shore Club South Beach, where you’ll find a lavish spread of hot and cold brunch stations, a raw bar, taco carts and platters of different kinds of empanadas. If you really want to indulge, Jaya at The Setai promises a sumptuous brunch buffet of Alaskan king crab legs, Indian butter chicken, red pork curry, gyozas, champagne, the Easter Bunny and live jazz, all in a luxurious, Asian-inspired atmosphere. For a real treat, follow your meal with a drink by the courtyard zen pond. There’s simply nothing like it.

Worship at a Sunrise Church Service

If you want to celebrate the traditional reason for the season, don’t miss one of Miami’s beautiful sunrise Easter services. Early Easter morning, Holy Rosary-St. Richard Catholic Church hosts a Catholic mass on the historic Deering Estate lawn, overlooking Biscayne Bay at sunrise. Just down the road, Christ Fellowship hosts an annual sunrise service at the idyllic Thalatta Estate in Cutler Bay. Both services are held outdoors, on the grass, so guests are encouraged to bring blankets or lawn chairs. Farther north, Calvary Miami Beach hosts its annual Easter Sunrise Service right on the sand—and yes, bathing suits are welcome. Visit individual church websites to find out service times and logistical information.
