Family Vacations for Easter Weekend in 2014

Will you be anywhere near DC on Easter Monday? Going back in times to 1878, the annual family event of the White House Easter Egg Roll is all set to delve you in hours of music, lawn games, storytelling and a fun visit with the adorable Easter Bunny. Along with Washington’s many delights, Walt Disney World is also set to welcome you to it’s a peak holiday period-so gear up for fairly big crowds and steeper prices at the many resorts in the region.

Your holiday experiences here and in other cities and towns of USA include Easter-themed fine arts and crafts; special parades and games; meet-and-greets with the famed Mr. and Mrs. Easter Bunny at Town Square in the Magic Kingdom; exciting Easter egg hunts; special Easter services and a lot more.

One of the major highlights of springtime in New York City is the Bonnet Festival and annual Easter Parade that has been taking over Fifth Avenue every Easter Sunday– since the mid-1800s. The event is about fancily-outfitted pets and over-the-top haberdashery, so do not expect to see floats here. (image by Geoffry Gertz)

Seville, Spain

At Seville, you can expect to find over a million revelers assembled to savor the delights of the grand and lively rituals of Semana Santa. This 7 days long religious pageant has its origin in the 16th-century and showcases drum corps and brass bands playing somber tunes; endless processions moving down the streets and across the plazas of Seville; masked and cloaked brotherhoods of Nazarenos marching along parade routes with black crosses in their hands; life-size statues dazzling in massive floats and a lot more. There is a lot to do and see in the scenic confines of this city during Easter-so, remember to bring your tiny tots and other loved ones along.

Ayacucho, Peru

Ayacucho, the Peruvian province, is renowned for its lively Easter celebrations. Tucked away in the majestic Andes Mountains, this attractive location lures with its 33 churches–each representing a year of Christ’s life. In Ayacucho, you may look forward to a lot of music and traditional processions that are quite similar to the spectacular celebrations held in Seville. You can look forward to witnessing local enthusiasts hoisting statues of biblical figures and saints and taking them along the plazas and streets of the town.(image by motoperu)
