report to us! If you have missed the Easter egg hunts in your area (or they were canceled), see this page about
how to easily have your own backyard or local park Easter egg hunt.

Updates for March 2023
Easter egg hunts are back! We've started updating the info for this year. Unfortunately MOST wait until the last minute (often just a week before) to publish their
dates, times and details. We're updating their information daily as it comes in. When we CONFIRM an event for 2023, the date will be highlighted in pink,(currently
showing those confirmed for last year) like this
passage to make them easy to find as you scroll down the page.
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! Farms will be open, and it's quite safe out in a field,
where people are not close to each other!
And if you are looking to save money on children's clothes, toys, books, etc, find a local
children's consignment sale, also often held by churches in
the Spring and Fall, click
And there will be St. Patrick's Day parades and events held in many cities - See this
page to find a Saint Patrick's Day parade near you!
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) 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 Since many egg hunts do not publish the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!
