Fun & Free Easter Weekend Events for LA Kids: All About Eggs and Bunnies

Everywhere you look, there's an Easter egg hunt to be found. Under that tree: an egg hunt. Behind the bushes, there’s one more. In fact, I see dozens of them, and you can find them in our Easter egg hunt round-up! Grab your basket and collect them all (but make sure you leave enough for the other mommies).

See, here’s the deal: There is literally an egg hunt on every block, every corner, every square inch of Los Angeles this weekend. And every egg that you find? You open it up and—surprise!—it tells you about another egg hunt. Some egg hunts are in gardens; some are in malls; some are on the farm; some come with breakfast. (Eggs and breakfast? Weird.)  

Actually, the trick this weekend is going to be not finding an egg hunt. There are a few other things out there: you might luck onto bubbles and Boleropachyderms and penguinsEarth Day and natural wondersice tales and dog tails and fish laying eggs...

Baby Animals and Easter Farm Fun for Philly Kids

Spring is always a great time of year to visit local farms, orchards, and zoos in the Philly suburbs.

For more ideas, be sure to browse our events calendar for Easter Fun. For now, read on for fun at the farm, orchard, and zoo.

Easter Egg Hunts in Chicago and the Suburbs

Celebrate Easter with kids at one of Chicago’s fun, treat-filled egg hunts. Most are outdoors at neighborhood parks and offer additional spring fun, including crafts, music, and photo ops with the Easter Bunny.

Easter egg hunts tend to be fast-paced and crowded, so arrive early and expect competition for those eggs. If you or your little one are crowd-averse, consider one of the hunts that costs a small fee, since they usually limit the number of participants and tend to be a bit less crowded than the free egg hunts.

While Easter Sunday is April 21 this year, most of the Easter egg hunts in Chicago are scheduled for the weekend before Easter. Our list is organized into hunts alphabetically by 'hood, with hunts in downtown Chicago neighborhoods as well as Easter egg hunts in the Chicago suburbs.

Meet the Easter Bunny for Photo Ops with Kids in and Around Boston

This time of year, the Easter Bunny keeps as busy as Santa in December. Along with egg hunts and special breakfasts, there are plenty of spots in the Boston area where kids can meet the Easter Bunny and get their pictures taken—and maybe even play some games or sample some treats with him. Depending on the activity, only professional photographers may be permitted to take pictures, but be sure to bring your camera for great photo ops just in case! 

Easter Egg Hunts for Kids in New York City

Easter Sunday is April 21 this year—later than usual, but really just a hop, skip, and a jump away. One of the best ways to celebrate with kids is to attend one of NYC's treat-filled egg hunts. Most are outdoors in playgrounds and parks, zoos, and gardens, but a few are indoors at museums and other cultural spots. Many offer additional spring fun, including seasonal crafts, face painting, and live entertainment.

Remember, Easter egg hunts in NYC are extremely popular so arrive early and expect hordes. If you dislike crowds, avoid the free hunts and opt for those that carry a small fee as they usually cap the number of participants. Or get your photo op with the Easter Bunny in ahead of time at these brunches.
