It’s that time of year when the weather turns nice – finally! – and thoughts turn towards Easter and getting outside. What better way to combine the two than with an Easter egg hunt? Pull out the Easter baskets, load up the kiddos and don’t forget to grab your camera as you head off to check out one of these great community-wide egg hunts.
This is by no means an exhaustive list, but participating in even more than one of these is sure to exhaust you! There is no charge to attend any of these hunts, but a handful do offer food trucks with items for purchase, so you might want to bring your wallet along.
