Updates for January 2021
It looks like egg hunts will be returning in 2021! It's a bit early to know for sure, and some in locked-down states like California, NY, NJ, MI, etc.
they may wait until the last minute to make announcements, but with the vaccine being rolled out, and most egg hunts being held outdoors, there little logic in not resuming them. 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.
Easter Sunday will be April 4, 2021. 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 Since many egg hunts do not publish the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.
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!

children's consignment sales, also often held by churches in
