This Week in Greater Lowell - Easter and April Playcation!

By Barbara Evangelista, Publisher April 12, 2017

We have TWO weeks of fun in this week's newsletter!  (Because this mama is taking a vacation -- yay!)  So many good things to share -- our Easter egg hunt guide, our April Vacation guide, our brand new Playground Guide for Greater Lowell, and great information from new local sponsors.  Your next newsletter will arrive in your inbox on Wednesday, April 26, and will be packed full of summer camp info and a great giveaway for BrickFair.

If you're doing an April "staycation", check out all the activities on our Event Calendar.  All Lowell Kids Week Playcation events and activities have been loaded into our calendar.  Please note that many of them require advance registration, so review the calendar now to be sure you're not too late.

Is a trip to Disney on the calendar for you in the next year?  Beth Landry, a Disney planner with HiHo Vacations, can help you make your trip a dream come true -- and her services are free!  Beth has all the intel on what to do and how to sign up for the right activities for your family at Disney and can make it all happen for your trip.  Learn more in our article about her services.

Now that the weather is finally better, check out our new Playground Guide for Greater Lowell!  We have reviews and photos for several of the larger playgrounds and would welcome reviews from other readers.  See our guide and pick out your next playground destination.

This weekend is also Patriots Day weekend, and our sister edition Macaroni Kid Acton-Concord-Bedford-Lexington has a special Patriots Day Weekend Guide, if you're interested in attending all of the many historical events and activities.

Please always remember to tell the event hosts that you heard about their event on Macaroni Kid! Your support helps us to bring you this free newsletter and website. We are supported solely by our sponsors.

If you know of any events or things to do that should be added to our calendar, please email the information to me at Please like Lowell Macaroni Kid on Facebook to learn about local activities, special deals and contests, follow us on Twitter for quick updates, and check out all of our past articles on Pinterest. We also publish the neighboring Macaroni Kid Acton-Concord-Bedford Lexington newsletter and website.

Have a great week!
