Events for Families in Orange County This Week April 1 – April 7th

FamilyEventsinOrangeCounty

While my kids are heading back-to-school this week, most kids are just starting Spring Break. With the kids out of school, we knew that parents would be looking for family-friendly events happening in Orange County this week so we worked hard to compile this list of events. We also just upgraded to a new events calendar, so stay tuned as we start updating it daily with more events for you family to enjoy. Have a great week!
