The Easter Bunny will make appearances throughout the Great lakes Region including brunch at Cross Creek Resort in Titusville and Easter Bunny Lane at Kraynaks in Hermitage, PA, a 300-foot indoor avenue of beautiful, brightly colored trees and life-like animated characters. The associated lawn and garden center has everything you need to get your garden started.
