Sometimes I really can’t believe how fast time goes. How is it possible that it’s almost Friday and this weekend is Easter Sunday? For some families, Easter is a great time to get together and celebrate old traditions.
But in between all the reuniting, egg hunts, and baked goodies, there are a few other things happening in Bucks County to make your weekend special.
You’ll notice there seems to be a theme of beer and wine and Easter eggs, but don’t worry, there’s food too.
1. Easter Wine Sale
Thursday through Saturday, Mar. 24 – 26, 10 am – 6 pm, Peace Valley Winery, 300 Old Limekiln Road, Chalfont, PA
Did you decide to host Easter brunch or dinner this year and you are in need of a good adult beverage? Whether you recognize Easter or not, there is a great Easter wine sale at Peace Valley Winery in Chalfont, PA this Thursday, March 24 until Saturday, March 26.

2. Hop Madness at Spinnerstown Hotel

Also on Saturday, Outside the Box Landscape is partnering with the market to lead a community project to develop a butterfly and pollinator garden at the market location. The garden will be a Monarch butterfly way station and seek certification through the Monarch Watch. Butterflies help the food supply, and they are also pretty to look at in the garden.
