Hip Hop Hooray for Egg Hunts at Parks

On the hunt for some family-friendly fun this spring? County Parks and Recreation has several egg hunts planned for every-bunny this month.

The egg-stravaganzas will take place over the next two weekends at County parks in Chula Vista, Del Mar, El Cajon, Escondido, Fallbrook, Lakeside, Ramona and Spring Valley. Some feature snacks and spring crafts and others pancake breakfasts. But all of them will have lots and lots of eggs to search for and an opportunity to meet the big bunny.

Egg hunts are BYOB—bring your own basket. Links are to Facebook events with more details.
