Activities celebrating Easter and the arrival of spring are on tap in the area over the next couple of weeks.

Churches are gearing up for Easter Sunday services, March 27, and Holy Days leading up to the observance, while other organizations are opening up for spring with their own seasonal celebrations.

In Sachse, the city is planning to host their ever-popular Easter trio of events March 19 at Heritage Park at 4408 Hudson Drive. The annual Easter Egg Scramble for children ages 2-10 kicks off at 10 a.m. followed by the Doggie Bone Hunt at 7:30 p.m. and the Flashlight Egg Hunt open to children ages 5 to 13 at 8:15 p.m. Also in Sachse, Northplace Church, 2800 Pleasant Valley Road is conducting a pair of Easter services Saturday, March 26, at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.

In Wylie, First United Methodist Church of Wylie is presenting a living tableau of the Last Supper from 7 p.m. until 8 p.m. on Maundy Thursday, March 24. FUMC also will host an Easter Egg hunt for area children from 10 a.m. until noon Saturday, March 26.

In-Sync Exotics, a big cat rescue organization at 3430 Skyview Drive in Wylie, is holding an Easter Egg hunt Saturday, March 26. Admission is $12 for adults and $10 for children ages three through 12.

On tap are games with prizes, face painting, snow cones, the Easter Bunny, bounce house and, of course, egg hunting. Hunts start at 11:30 a.m. for the youngest children and continue until the final group starts searching at 1:30 p.m. The event is open to children under six years of age up to 13.

After the Easter Egg hunts, children and their families are invited to view the big cats, tigers, lions, leopards, cheetahs, cougars and more.

First Baptist Church of Wylie, located downtown, plans services on three days of Easter weekend, at 7 p.m. Good Friday, March 25, at 6 p.m. Saturday, March 26, and at 8:15 a.m. 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. Sunday, March 27.
