Without a doubt, this weekend’s events are dominated by egg hunts, baskets of sugar and fuzzy bunnies – both real and costumed. In addition to the bigger hunts on our Egg Hunt Roundup, there’s KUIK’s Great Westside Easter Egg Hunt and activities, like the Kidical Mass Peep Parade and the Inflatable Kingdom Egg-Stravaganza that have the added bonus of exercise for burning off all of that sugar-fueled energy. Read on to discover our top picks for this weekend.
