It’s time for a round-up of the best Easter Egg Hunts in Wichita, Kansas!
This year, Easter is on Sunday, March 27, but most of the events will be happening before that. Grab your own basket, your camera, and your kiddos before you head out the door. Don’t forget to share this list with your friends. Where possible, I’ve provided links for each egg hunt in the list so you can get more information and register, if necessary. It’s also a good idea to double-check the event times, since sometimes the schedules change and I don’t always hear about it!
Do you know of an Easter egg hunt/Easter activity that should be on this list? Please leave info about it in the comments, below!
