Easter weekend is here. Kids all over Tyler, Gilmer, Longview, Sulphur Springs, Jacksonville, Henderson, Kilgore, Athens, and Whitehouse will be hunting some brightly colored eggs that have been laid by the Easter Bunny! Many will be looking for that golden egg, which usually means some kind of big prize or MONEY!

I'll be looking for a golden egg this weekend when I play Powerball with hopes of winning that $935 million jackpot!

Easter weekend in East Texas should be absolutely gorgeous and very comfortable. Looking at the forecast from the National Weather Service - temperatures will be hovering around 80 degrees with partly to mostly cloudy skies by Sunday afternoon. Great weather to get outdoors and do something in East Texas.

Here's a look at this weekend's event happening across East Texas.
