Easter is great because it's the first sign of spring, and it's another excuse to eat chocolate. Plus, who doesn't love decorating eggs? There's also a ton of cheap (and free) Easter events happening in Buffalo within the next few weeks -- we even found an adult Easter Egg Hunt at a winery. Yes, please!
