Egg Hunts in the Capital Region

With egg hunts and Easter events planned throughout the month of April all over the Capital Region, families have many options for finding one that fits their schedule.

Many of our Easter egg hunts took place in a neighbor’s front yard. It was easy, convenient, and blessedly free of chaos and noise.

Our last egg hunt took place two years ago, but it was a good one. It wasn’t easy, but we scored tickets to the first Egg Hunt at the White House of the Obama Administration.

We couldn’t top that if we tried, and with my children over the cut off age for most egg hunts, we won’t even try.

Where will your children hunt eggs this year? At home, in the neighborhood, or at one of the many Capital Region Egg Hunts? Help me fill in the blanks on the list below!

The Niskayuna parade is traditionally on Good Friday, I think at 10 am. Of course, it basically consists of moms with strollers circumnavigating the traffic circle before going inside town hall for pictures with The Bunny.
