Updates for May 2022
It looks like SOME egg hunts will be returning in 2022! It's a bit early to know for sure, as many are waiting until the last minute to make announcements. ALWAYS,
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, and it is impossible to
confirm yet; most of the dates provided are speculative, based on 2019 dates.
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. Easter Sunday will be 17 April 2022. 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, COVID 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 Since many egg hunts do not publish the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.
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 othger!
