Updates for May 2022
More Easter egg hunts are returning in 2022! Unfortunately MANY have waited until the last minute to publish their
dates, times and details. We're updating their information daily as it comes in. When we CONFIRM an event for 2022, the date will be highlighted in pink, like this
passage to make them easy to find as you scroll down the page.

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 Since many egg hunts do not publish the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!
