Updates for May 2019
May: Easter Sunday will be April 21, 2019. Most Easter egg hunts
are being held on the Saturday a week before Easter,
or the day before Easter Sunday. ALWAYS click the links to check date and time with the event's own website, as there are often last minute cancellations, postponements or changes to locations due to weather (like heavy rains in the northeast) or logistical problems, just click on the link to the event's website and (in most cases), you want to click on the "events" link or "calendar" link on their website.
Or use their site search for "Easter". Do let them know you found them here, so
they will update us next year. Since many egg hunts do not publish the
current year's dates until the very last minute, or simply never respond to
email, we may not get their
current information, which is why we have links to their websites, facebook
pages and calendars. Besides egg hunts, there are also Easter breakfasts and brunches and
Easter parades to watch! RELATED:
