I don't know about you, but in my opinion, spring isn’t officially here until Easter comes around. Flowers are beginning to bloom the sun is out and the temperatures are on the rise, winter is finally over.
Easter is just around the corner and Cayuga County is prepared with Easter Egg Hunts, Easter Sunday Brunches and Easter Bunny appearances.
