Eggciting Easter Egg Hunts & Events This Weekend

Throughout the year there are certain holidays that kids anticipate with a glow of excitement in their eyes. Christmas, Halloween, and birthdays are all holidays children look forward to receiving gifts or candy, but Easter is the only holiday where the gift and candy receiving involve the fun of a scavenger hunt. This year, bring the egg-hunting celebration outside your backyard by attending one of the many Easter egg hunts going on around town (including a Guinness World Record breaking hunt at Capitol Park!). And while you’re out, take advantage of other Easter offerings including pancakes, carnival games, a live performance of Charlotte’s Web, and photos with the Easter bunny.
