It’s time for a round-up of the best Easter Egg Hunts in Wichita, Kansas! Every year, literally thousands of families search for Easter egg hunts in the Wichita area. And that’s because we don’t just have egg hunts – we do it up right with activities for every member of the family.
Many of these are free events; some charge a nominal fee. All are egg-cellent fun. (That’s for Jody.)
This year, Easter is on Sunday, April 16, but most of these Easter events will be happening before that. Grab your own basket, your camera, and your kiddos before you head out the door.
These will be fun and family-friendly spring events. Don’t forget to spread the word to your friends.
Because many of these are outdoor egg hunts, double-check all events before you head out the door!
