Updates for August 2018
Easter Sunday will April 21, 2019, If you plan to hold an Easter egg hunt, add
or update your information as soon as you can. In 2018 most Easter egg hunts
were held on
either Saturday, March 24, 2018 or Saturday, March 31, 2018. ALWAYS click the links to check date and time with the event's own website, as there are often last minute changes due to weather 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 Since many egg hunts do not publish the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, we may not get their
current information, which is why we have links to their websites, facebook
pages and calendars. See their events calendar. There are also Easter breakfasts and brunches and
Easter parades to watch! RELATED:
