Easter eggs, dino eggs or pet-friendly eggs. Hunt for them all this weekend!
The Easter Bunny is visiting eastern Connecticut next weekend to celebrate his trademark holiday and hide eggs for hunts. Well, in the case of the Dinosaur Place at Nature’s Art, Monty the Dino helped out and hid Dino eggs instead.
Whichever kind of eggs you’re looking for, Easter weekend is the time to head out and hunt.
Friday , April 6 the Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center is having two wild egg hunts with over 1,000 eggs hidden on their woodland walking trails (10 am- 11 am and 1pm -2 pm). Pre-registration is a MUST for this one. Each child (ages 1-10).
On Saturday, April 7, there are egg hunts galore. The Dinosaur Place in Montville has a morning and afternoon hunt, and children are sorted by age group.
Creamery Brook Bison in Brooklyn’s egg hunt begins with a wagon ride to visit the buffalo. The egg hunt will be in the farm’s gazebo area, and there are prizes in every egg for kids 12 and under. There will be games too, and the farm is a great place to spend the day with the family. The Easter festivities begin at 2 p.m.
If you’ll be in Mystic, Olde Mistick Village has egg hunts in shifts for all age groups. Mr. Bunny will be available in the gazebo to say hello to the kids. If it rains, don’t worry–the eggs will be in the gazebo. Mr. Bunny wants to make sure all the eggs are claimed!
And if you’re a doggie parent Petco has you covered. The Lisbon store is having an Easter egg hunt, also on April 7, sponsored by Halo for our four-legged friends. Dogs will search for healthy treats and meet new friends. (Kids welcome too.)
Everyone gets to enjoy Easter around here!
