First, some egg hunt tips.
1. Many require pre-registration. (This is true for events in general, not just egg hunts.)
2. Some events have different times for different age groups. This can be difficult if you have multiple children, so plan accordingly.
3. Punctuality – those eggs run out quickly!
4. Don’t forget to bring a basket or something to use as a “basket”.

If you know of an Easter egg hunt, you should add it to this list. Please send it here.
