The Front Range is hopping with Easter Egg Hunts! Here’s the latest, based on what we could dig up. Hunts are sorted by date and listed alphabetically. Most are FREE, unless otherwise noted. Remember to bring some sort of basket or bucket for the kids to collect their eggs and treats.
Be sure to note the time and date of all events, as some divide the hunt based on age. And, since candy-seeking kids can sweep an entire field of treats clean in a matter of minutes, we suggest arriving early to nab a good spot. Happy Egg Hunting!
