Easter is coming, and of course there should be a good egg hunt to usher it in. This year, there are plenty of egg hunts happening in and around the city. Most of them take place outdoors at zoos and parks, but there are some happening indoors. Along with the egg hunt, many of these places will also have face painters, crafts, prizes, and concerts for the whole family to enjoy. So, find one you like and make a day of it.
