EDINBURG - If you haven’t found the time to decorate Easter eggs, there is still time to participate in Cascarón! to be held at the Museum of South Texas History. Bring the whole family on Saturday, April 15, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. to decorate cascarones, or egg shells, with decorating materials provided by the museum. A dozen egg shells will be available for a $1 donation, while supplies last.
Volunteers will be available to help children and adults create and fill their own personalized cascarón and then proudly present to friends and family on Easter Sunday. Guests can also use their cascarones for the cascarón hunt to be held in the museum’s Gran Paseo, just outside the Grand Entrance. Newspaper baskets, or bring your own basket, will be available for the cascarón hunt.
