If you're looking for a fun activity that will last all day, consider the Family Easter Cruise with the Easter Bunny. Located at Columbia Yacht Club, 111 N. Lake Shore Drive, this cruise lasts from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. The boat sets sail out of the Chicago port and features a variety of fun activities.

Some of these activities include an on-board Easter Bunny who mingles with guests, treat-filled Easter eggs and bunny ears for children, family-friendly part tunes, awesome photo opportunities, and some of the best views of the Chicago skyline from the top deck of the cruise ship. Cocktails will also be available for parents to enjoy. Plus, there are several contests you can enjoy, including a photo contest that involves posting your Easter cruise pictures on Instagram or Facebook. There's no dress code for this cruise, so come wearing your favorite Easter clothing or whatever makes you feel comfortable.

The Easter Oratorio

The Easter Oratorio is a fun adventure for adults and children alike. There are three different versions of this Oratorio, a sacred variation related to the lost secular cantata "Entfliehet, Ihr Sorge, Verschwindet." Other events include music of the Baroque period, which includes McGill Plays Mozart and Classical Heroines. The imaginative and energetic concepts make for a truly unique experience, and the programs available ensure kids and adults alike have fun. This is the perfect option if you have a music or history buff in your family, and you can find this museum at 205 E. Randolph Drive.

Easter Egg-Stravaganza

The Easter Egg-Stravaganza, located in Lincoln Park Zoo at 2234 N. Cannon St., is a great option for children who love both animals and searching for Easter eggs. Some of the various events you can look forward to include several different egg hunts based on age, photos with the Easter bunny and other spring characters, outdoor games and activities, fun music, and free passes to a number of different rides in the zoo. No matter how old your children's are, they're sure to have a good time at the Easter Egg-Stravaganza.

Egg hunts are divided into two different egg hunt zones. One zone is for ages 3 and under, and another is designated for children 4 and older. Tickets are first come, first served, so be sure to reserve your spot ahead of time. The zoo provides an estimated 15 eggs per child and asks that everyone is respectful toward one another when egg hunting. You'll need to bring your own Easter egg basket or bag for the egg hunting event.

Easter Saturday Egg Hunt Popup Shop

The Easter Saturday Egg Hunt Popup Shop is put on by Glamour Chateau, located at 4729 South Ashland Ave., and has a number of fun activities for children and adults alike. The pop-up shop is open April 16 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and will be in the back area of the Chateau. They will also be serving brunch, so come hungry.

Kids can enjoy a picture with the Easter bunny, an egg hunt, and more. There will also be more than 25 vendors at the Easter Saturday Egg Hunt Popup Shop, so parents can shop while children search for eggs. Other exciting events they have include a nacho bar, a pastry table, and unlimited mimosas.

There will also be a balloon artist present, as well as food and prizes. Children must be registered to receive an Easter basket.

A face mask will be required, and there is COVID-19 testing right on site for convenience. The giveaway begins at 10 a.m. and ends at 1 p.m, with the actual event lasting through 2 p.m. If your children love Easter baskets, this is the perfect event to take them to.

Be sure to stop by to take a break and fuel up for your next big Easter adventure.

Easter Ska Jam With the Freecoasters

For an Easter activity that will get older kids and teens excited, consider attending the Easter Ska Jam with the Freecoasters. Music will be played by DJ Chuck Wren, who is known for his hip-hop music. The event is on Saturday, April 16 at 10 p.m. through midnight, so it's the perfect option to consider after putting the younger kids to bed after a long day of Easter egg hunting.
