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  Since many egg hunts do not publish the current year's dates until the very last minute, or simply never respond to email, we may not get their current information, which is why we have links to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!
If you need to add your egg hunt or update your existing information, click on these links.

RELATED:You may also want to go to a local farm to Pick Your Own fruit and vegetables; strawberries start very soon in most areas!
