Have a Fun Easter in Bakersfield, California!

As we move into the spring season, Easter is just around the corner. As one of the most fun holidays for the family, everyone wants to create an Easter holiday that the kids will remember forever. That’s why we’ve put together this article for what to do for Easter in Bakersfield, California.

 

Bakersfield Easter Egg Hunt

For an experience that is both memorable and free, look no further than the Bakersfield Easter Egg Hunt. Held on April 15th, 2017 from 10:30am-12:00pm, there will be over 5,000 eggs to hunt for children between ages 2-12. It will be located at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center at 1000 S. Owens.

 

Easter at Home

In addition to the community event, you’ll more than likely plan some fun activities at your own home as well. While these activities are great, the clean up can be a bit of a mess.

If you find yourself with fake grass littered all across your home, it’s actually a quick and simple cleanup. All that you need to do is take a lint roller and run it across all the surfaces in your home.

All of us here at Bakersfield Mazda hope that you have a wonderful Easter in Bakersfield, California!

New Zach Galifianakis Show ‘Baskets’ Set in Bakersfield

The new Zach Galifianakis show Baskets, which just premiered on FX in January, is set in our very own Bakersfield, California. The show stars Galifianakis in dual roles as Chip Baskets, a failed professional clown, and Dale, his twin brother, as well as Louie Anderson, who plays their mother, and Martha Kelly, Chip’s only friend.

After trying to make it as a clown in France, Chip Baskets returns to his hometown of Bakersfield, where he finds he’s miserable in the arid, dry climate of Southern California. The show often portrays the city as a desert wasteland, but it isn’t all bad—that’s mostly Chip’s perspective. Chip is on his way to finding happiness in Bakersfield; he even gets a job as a rodeo clown.

So it’s not the most flattering portrayal—apparently all there is to do here in Bakersfield is hang out at the gas station or Arby’s—but it’s definitely entertaining to see a dramatized version of our city on TV and poke fun at it a bit. Check out Baskets on FX if you haven’t yet!
