Hop into Spring with a fun community celebration, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., March 31, as the Museum of Ventura County hosts free family activities on the Museum Plaza in conjunction with the City of Ventura egg hunt and street fair. Stop by the Museum’s plaza to decorate a bag with ribbons and frills for the Mission Park egg hunt, featuring more than 10,000 eggs. Enjoy making a spring bouquet with tissue paper flowers. Get inspired by our amazing Ventura County timeline murals and create your own “mosaic” spring card to share with your special someone. Have your photo taken with the Easter Bunny. All activities and crafts are free, thanks to the generosity of museum supporter Mimi Allin and TOLD Corporation. Admission to the museum is also free; the museum is open until 5 p.m. There is ample free parking available.
