Updates for January 2021
It looks like egg hunts will be returning in 2021! It's a bit early to know for sure, and some in locked-down states like California, NY, NJ, MI, etc.
they may wait until the last minute to make announcements, but with the vaccine being rolled out, and most egg hunts being held outdoors, there little logic in not resuming them. ALWAYS confirm directly with the sponsor
(we provide links to their websites, email and phone numbers) to ensure they are still holding the event, as the situation too fluid.
Easter Sunday will be April 4, 2021. 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 Since many egg hunts do not publish the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!

the Egg Hunt area and your child will line up with other children and
pick up eggs. The eggs will then be turned in for a goodie bag. The
first egg hunt each time will be for the 1-3 year olds. Once they are
finished and while they are turning in their eggs for the goodie bags,
the 4-6 year olds start their egg hunt. It all happens very quickly.
We make sure each child gets at least a few eggs and since they turn
them in for goodie bags, it doesn't matter how many they get. It's our
goal that they have fun, so we do everything we can to make sure the
children have the chance to find eggs. GEM MINING and GEODE CRACKING,
too. The petting farm, gem mining and rides will also be open on
