Easter in the Stockyards has something for almost everybody

For a Texas-size, Southern-style Easter celebration, hop on down with the family to the Fort Worth Stockyards. An egg hunt for all ages is scheduled to begin right at noon, and, of course, the Easter bunny will be there. Face-painting will be among the activities for kids, and there will be a balloon artist crafting animals.

If you're also interested in starting the day off fit and healthy before the egg hunt and festivities, you can register for the fifth annual Run for the Riders Easter Run in the Stockyards. There's a 10K run , 5K run/walk and 1-mile fun run/walk.

It all benefits the All-Star Equestrian Foundation (Horses Helping People) therapeutic riding facility for patients with autism, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and other special needs. The run begins at 8:30 a.m. Register at
