Whether you have a little one who wants to meet the Easter Bunny or an adult looking for a bottomless mimosa brunch, this is the area’s best line up to celebrate Easter in Reno Tahoe. (Warning: There are a lot of egg puns within the paragraphs … the Easter Bunny made us.)

Easter Egg Hunts, Not Just for Kids

Grab your baskets because the Easter Bunny is making a stop in South Lake Tahoe for the Heavenly Village Easter Egg Hunt. Your little bunny, who’s 12 and under, will be hopping-for-joy as they try to find the 10,000 candy- and toy-filled eggs sprinkled around the village. Plus, the parents will enjoy the chance for $1,000 in cash prizes. After this eggs-capade, enjoy Brunch with the Easter Bunny or even try creating your own at their Build a Bunny workshop. At just about the price of a bag of carrots, buy your tickets now.

Brunching & Buffets

This Easter, take your brunching riverside on the patio at Wild River Grille. The three-course pre-fixe menu begins with an assortment of parfaits, fresh fruit and locally baked muffins. Moving on to the main meal, choose from five scrumptious options, including my favorites — a braised short rib eggs benedict or the coffee rub steak and eggs. And don’t forget the bottomless mimosas, no brunch would be complete without this delight. The kiddos will surely enjoy their special brunch menu too. Available for dine in or to-go, make your reservation early. This delicious line-up will surely get you hopping.
