You've been seeing a lot of stories about Easter-related activities, so let's get this important piece of information out of the way right...in 2022, Easter will fall on April 17th. It's the one holiday I always have to look up, and I'm sure I'm not alone.
Between now and then, you will have plenty of opportunities to enjoy many events planned here in the tri-state or throughout Kentucky. And Kentucky's state parks plan to get in on the action with a calendar of fun activities for the whole family.
