Easter may be April 17, but several churches and community groups are hosting Easter Egg Hunts the weekend prior. That means young egg seekers can participate in multiple hunts this year, honing their egg finding skills to perfection. Events are FREE unless otherwise noted and listed alphabetically. If you know of any hunts we’ve missed, please email email@example.com.
