2014 Easter Egg Hunt

Kansas City Easter Parade

Saturday, April 19th, 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Town Square and the streets of Zona Rosa

In 2006 Zona Rosa reintroduced a local favorite: Kansas City’s own Easter Parade. It was met with such fanfare, that the event has become an annual tradition at Zona Rosa. This FREE community event features the Easter Bunny, a best dressed contest for the whole family featuring Spring/Easter finery, (the BEST DRESSED FAMILY wins $1,000!) a live performance by Mr. Stinky Feet, and much more!

In fitting with Kansas City tradition, the Easter Parade at Zona Rosa has invited the community each year, for a free, family friendly walking parade throughout the Town Center streets. This year, we’re once again extending our invitation to include any of those wishing to ride throughout the parade, providing you supply your own vehicle, in an effort to help raise awareness for your business, your non-profit community organization, your school, dance studio, band… the list goes on. Motorized vehicles AND parade floats are welcome! *With registration. Click HERE to download your printable form.


Where do I sign up to WALK in the Easter Parade?
Between 10AM and 11AM – head to N. Dixson Avenue between Town Square and Marshalls and visit the registration table to pick up an Easter Egg paddle with a number on it. That’s it! No info required, just pick up your paddle! (Prizes are awarded to the Best Dressed Man, Woman, Boy, Girl, FAMILY and Pet. The best dressed FAMILY could win a $1,000 Zona Rosa gift card!)

How do we find out if we won?
"Best Dressed" winners will be announced at Town Square after the parade.

What time does the parade begin?
11:00AM – and it lasts about 30 minutes.

What route does the parade take if we just want to watch?
Pick a spot anywhere along the route to watch!

Will the Easter Bunny be available for photos?
YES! After the bunny leads the parade he will head to his "bunny bench" located between Build A Bear and Subway on N. Dixson Ave. (Available from approximately Noon – 4PM. PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN CAMERAS!)

What else is going on?
Mr. Stinky Feet performs for kids/families at Noon. (Approx.)
Family games such as bunny sack races and a hula hoop contest begin at 1:00PM.(Approx.)
The exotic petting zoo is open from 10:30AM – 4:00PM
