Baskets at the Ready? Egg Hunts Begin This Weekend

The reasons that spring and Easter are associated with a bunny and eggs are ancient, but the thrill  kids get with hunting for and finding the eggs that crazy hare lays, chocolate or otherwise, are timeless.

And, once again, various groups in the City of Easton and the surrounding municipalities will be hosting egg hunts in the days leading up to Easter Sunday. The festivities are free, unless otherwise noted.
