It's almost the time of year when the temperatures get warmer, the grass gets greener, and eggs turn all different colors.  Easter is April 17th, but it's a safe bet that decorations, candy, and more are already in stores.  Soon, every kid in the state will be losing their minds over when and where the biggest Easter-egg hunts will be.  If you're willing to make the 3 & 1/2 hour drive (and, foot the bill for the gas), you can throw your eager little egg hunters in the mix for the biggest egg-drop in the entire state!

The helicopter in airfield

According to a report from KATC, the 7th Annual OSC EggDrop is scheduled to take place on April 9th at Jennings Parks & Recreation in Jennings, Louisiana from 11 A.M. until 2 P.M. - and these guys are going big!  A helicopter will drop roughly 50,000 treat-filled, plastic Easter eggs onto the field.  As soon as it is cleared, the kids are allowed to fill their baskets to the brim!  To ensure that the whole process is as fair as possible, there will be several age categories: 0-4, 5-8, and 9-12 - with parents on the field to help all but the oldest group of kids.

Our Savior's Church's official website reports that the event will feature inflatable attractions, food trucks, and even a special visit from the Easter Bunny himself!  Church officials say that while they suggest pre-registration for the event (which you can do here), they will be registering participants the day of the event.

Louisiana Vampire Author Anne Rice's New Orleans Mansion is For Sale

Before famed Louisiana author Anne Rice died in December of 2021, she brought us an incredible wealth of literature. Starting in 1976 with her first published book Interview with the Vampire, Rice captured the imagination of fans around the world. In total she penned 36 novels, including four under the nom de plume A.N. Roquelaure, two more under a different pen name (Anne Rampling), one with her son, Christopher Rice, and one non-fiction book. Her success brought her enough money to purchase this historic (and reportedly haunted) mansion in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Now, this magnificent piece of literary history is up for sale - and it's even been reduced. The price has been slashed by $600,000, and now sits just below the $4 million mark.

If you like what you see, and you'd like to live like the Louisiana Vampire Queen Anne Rice did - just visit the realtor's page and put in an offer!
