Easter Holiday Events, Anna Maria Island, FL

There’s no shortage of fun around the Easter holiday on Anna Maria Island and Dans Florida Condos! Choose from events at the Sandbar Restaurant, Pine Avenue or Mar Vista Dockside Restaurant to celebrate with your family and friends, which are all a short ride or walk from the complex!

The Sandbar Restaurant and Pine Avenue Restoration are pleased to announce the exciting events that will take place this Easter in the City of Anna Maria. The 32nd Annual Sandbar Easter Egg Hunt starts sharply at 9:00 am., on Saturday, March 31st with refreshments served in the Pavilion next to the restaurant starting at 8:30 am. The Pavilion will not be accessible until 8:30 am. The hunt will take place on the beach directly next to the restaurant with sections set up for children aged 0-2, 3-6 and 7-10. Each child is responsible for bringing their own basket to collect eggs. Parking is available in the restaurant lot, across the street and at city hall. We encourage folks to take the free island trolley or monkey bus.

After the Sandbar fun, the Easter Bunny will lead a walking parade down Pine Avenue where the 9th Annual Easter Egg Roll and Easter Bonnet Contest will take place. There will be plenty of fun for the whole family with games, face painting, egg rolling and coloring. Complimentary mimosas, sausage biscuits and frittatas will be provided by the Sandbar Restaurant along with cupcakes from Hometown Desserts. Take home an Easter keepsake – a framed picture with the Easter Bunny with pictures taken by Dara Caudill of IslandPhotography.org. Music will be provided by Chuck Caudill. A fabulous gift basket will be raffled off to one lucky winner. The egg roll and bonnet contest event is also sponsored by the Sandbar Restaurant, PAR and the Anna Maria Sun Newspaper.
