Updates for July 2022

More Easter egg hunts are returning in 2022! Unfortunately MANY have waited until the last minute to publish their dates, times and details. We're updating their information daily as it comes in.  When we CONFIRM an event for 2022, the date will be highlighted in pink, like this passage to make them easy to find as you scroll down the page.

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! Farms will be open, and it's quite safe out in a field, where people are not close to each othger!
And if you are looking for local children's consignment sales, also often held by churches in the Spring and Fall, click here!

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) 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 Since many egg hunts do not publish the current year's dates until the very last minute, or simply never respond to email, we may not get their current information, which is why we have links to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!
