Easter is coming up fast. We found 4 egg hunts to check out with your family for the 2024 season.

Easter lands on March 31st this year. At the time of this article, there are only two weeks until the big day. Whether you are celebrating the holiday for religious purposes or not, the celebration of spring and its festivities is not one to miss. One of the most popular ways to celebrate Easter is in seeking treasures through egg hunting.

Why the Easter Bunny hides and produces eggs is a mystery, but it’s no surprise the family fun that can be found in this deeply beloved holiday tradition. If you are trying to decide where to egg hunt, many opportunities in the Central New York area accommodate a variety of budgets, dates,  and surrounding activities for the Easter season:
