Bass Pro Shops across Texas are planning Easter events for eight days straight leading up to the holiday on the 27th, which means the kids will stay busy while you browse through waders and tackle boxes in peace.  Oh, and the whole family can get a picture taken with the Easter Bunny.

The Easter events start on March 19th and run through Easter Sunday, March 27th, and they're all free.

Photos with the Easter Bunny are on Saturdays and Sundays, March 19-20 and 26-27, 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.  They'll do it again Monday-Thursday, March 21-24, 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. and Friday, March 25, 2 p.m. - 8 p.m. too.

Easter egg hunts will be for kids ages 2 - 10 on Saturdays and Sundays, March 19-20 and 26-27, from 2 p.m. - 3 p.m.  You've got to get there early and register at 1:30 p.m. those days.

It's prime time to stock up on gear for the Big Bass Bash fishing tournament that's coming up April 9 and 10 at Lake Palestine Resort.  It might be worth it to pack up the family and take the field trip to Bass Pro Shops to get the rods and reels. And we'll watch for that family photo with the Easter Bunny on your Facebook page.
