Saturday April 15th, the Louisiana Purchase Gardens and Zoo will be holding its Easter Eggstravaganza. Gates open at 10:00 a.m. that morning, and the Easter egg hunts start at 11:00 a.m.

The Easter Eggstravaganza is one of the zoo's biggest events of the year. Director of the zoo, Joe Clawson, shares that, "The event is to raise money, but it is also to share with the community what's been going on at the zoo. We're really proud of what the staff has accomplished."

In the wake of the recent flooding affecting the area it can be easy to forget that Easter is right around the corner. The Louisiana Delta Ballet helps celebrate this holiday with the return of its show "Power and Grace" Saturday March 19 at 7:30 p.m. in the Jack Howard Theater of the Monroe Civic Center.

The show returns after several years in part because of an what the company describes as an immense public outcry. Featuring selections of scripture readings, song, and dance the program tells the Easter story, and is intended to both inspire and uplift audience members.
