Knights of Columbus

This egg hunt has separate areas for different age groups, but is still the “fastest 5 minutes at Edward Douglass White.”

Certain eggs have a prize ticket inside and the Easter Bunny will pop by for a visit and photos with the kids. Enjoy an afternoon on the beautiful grounds. There is no charge to participate. This event is a great choice for a toddler’s first egg hunt.

Saturday, March 31 at 10:00 am

Many neighborhoods host egg hunts as well. Madison Manor’s will be held at Madison Manor Park, 6225 12th Rd N. The Madison Manor Civic Association appreciates donations to help keep this event going, so bring a few dollar bills to put in when the jar is passed around. Help your neighbors spread the joy: share your neighborhood’s hunt details in the comments.

Looking for decorations to welcome Spring at home? Check out Two the Moon, located downstairs in the Williamsburg Shopping Center, 6501 N 29th Street. The locally-owned gift shop has many beautiful Easter and Spring decorations, as well as some cute Easter basket stuffers (bunny jewelry!) with the children’s items.
