Spring has been gloomy so far, but Easter is blooming with thousands of new plantings inside the greenhouse at Noelridge Park. Visitors can follow the bunny trail through a kaleidoscope of blossoms and greenery, as well as demonstrations and exhibits by the Eastern Iowa Aquarium Association and the Harshbarger Hosta Society. Admission is free, but bring a little green to take home houseplants, honey, handcrafted jewelry and pressed-flower greeting cards. The first 500 children ages 12 and under will receive a free plant to take home. So hippity hop on over for a fresh breath of spring.
Noelridge Easter Showcase
11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday (3/31) and Sunday (4/1), Noelridge Greenhouse, 4900 Council St. NE, Cedar Rapids; free admission
