Grab your baskets and your bunny ears, and get ready to hunt for the golden egg, and any others you might find along the way! There are a number of local Easter festivities for the whole family to enjoy this month, featuring egg hunts and visits with the big bunny. If you can’t find a hunt that fits your needs, consider getting together with a few other families and creating your own Easter egg hunt right in the backyard!
Easter Egg Hunt @ Colchester's Bayside Park: On Saturday March 26 at 10am sharp, two Easter egg hunts will be hosted in this park. On one side of the park, kids 4 and under can hunt, while on the other side, children ages 5–8 can run around and compete for the most eggs. This is a great one if you have kids in different age groups.

Bill Mikell Easter Egg Hunt and Parade at Williston Central School: This exciting event offers egg hunting for kids under the age of 12 and entertainment in the form of a parade for the whole family. In addition, prizes will be awarded for specially marked eggs and to children wearing creative Easter costumes (think bunnies, chicks, eggs, carrots, etc.).

Mud Season Egg Hunt: This festive event is true to the New England season: bring your own basket and rain boots in preparation for any mud you might encounter! In particular, this event is unique because it invites participants to celebrate nature and new birth by getting outside on the trails. Children and their parents walk the Short Trail and collect eggs, and when they return to the Visitors’ Center, they can trade them in for chocolates and other treats and prizes from Laughing Moon Chocolates. The hunt is held from 10am–12pm on Saturday March 26, and after you’ve hunted to your heart’s content, you can head to Laughing Moon Chocolates to meet the Easter Bunny, who will be there from 11am to 2pm. The event is free.

Keene Easter Egg Hunt, Keene, New Hampshire: Sponsored by local candy shops, this community event is free to kids ages 3–8. The hunt begins at 10am on Saturday March 26 at Fuller Park on Washington Street in downtown Keene. Don’t forget to bring your basket!

24TH ANNUAL EASTER EGG HUNT: This annual Egg Palooza will be sure to delight every child. It features four “heats” of hunts, from 10:30–11:30, starting with the youngest age group (1–3) and moving to the oldest (8–10 years) until all the eggs are found. Merrimack Parks and Recreation and Merrimack Friends and Families host this event on Saturday March 19, which includes a visit from the Easter Bunny in the Function Hall from 10–11:30am and a bake sale for charity featuring delicious Easter goodies. Come hungry and ready to hunt!
