Easter Sunday is April 16, and the day before the 4th Annual Lincoln Park Egg-Splosion offers you and your family a chance to have some pre-holiday fun.

According to organizers, children and families will learn unique egg-dyeing techniques such as tie-dyeing and marbling before launching the eggs into the field with a wrist rocket. Prizes will be awarded for both egg decorating and egg launching.

The fun takes place from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm at Harrison Park and Community Center (3002 West 3rd Street).  The event is free, thanks to supporting local businesses, and a light breakfast will be available.
