Updates for June 2019

June: Easter Sunday will be April 21, 2019. 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 (like heavy rains in the northeast) 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  Since many egg hunts do not publish the current year's dates until the very last minute, or simply never respond to email, we may not get their current information, which is why we have links to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.

RELATED:You may also want to go to a local farm to Pick Your Own fruit and vegetables; strawberries start very soon in most areas!

It is a relaxing family event where the kids can participate in a noncompetative egg hunt and interact with the farm animals.  As you come onto the farm and check in at the table, the children are given an Easter basket with color book, crayons, fun items and crackers to feed the animals. There is a designated egg hunt area where each child can gather five plastic eggs with candy in them. There is a limit of five eggs per child, partly because of the number of children that come through over the weekend (we fill over 800 eggs) and also upon parents request. But... once you have enjoyed all the activities, as you are leaving, make sure you stop by the check-in table to pick a bigger prize, such as a chocolate Easter bunny or another prize of their choice. Other Farm activities include feeding all the farm animals.Cost: $35 per child. For info, call.  PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED*
