Easter Eggs Hunts 2015

Easter Egg Hunts 2015

Although it seemed like it would never arrive, Spring is here (well, almost!) and Easter is approaching. Grab some baskets (and maybe swimsuits or flashlights) and search for some colorful Easter eggs. These are just some of the hunts in Chicago and the suburbs. Have a favorite one that’s not listed? Let me know and I’ll add it!

Many of the hunts and events listed below require pre-registration so be sure to plan ahead. It’s always a good idea to bring a bag or basket to collect eggs and a camera to catch all those special moments. Egg hunts can end quickly so be sure you’re there EARLY to avoid disappointment. I do my best to provide accurate information, but please double check details by calling ahead or visiting the website for the event. Good luck hunting!
