Here in Northern Colorado, Easter brings lots of bunnies, plenty of sweets, delicious, seasonal foods, and thousands of eggs (even some that glow-in-the-dark!). To help you and your family make the most of the weekend, we rounded up Easter events happening in Loveland, Fort Collins, Greeley, Estes Park, Windsor and Milliken. Events start as early as April 13th and continue through April 21st.
