Easter Fun & Egg Hunts Around the East Valley


We can all agree that this Easter is better than last year’s — most certainly an improvement from the locked down version of the holiday last year! 

With COVID still in a season of uncertainties with public events, many of our beloved Easter Events have been cancelled again this year, but not to worry! There are still several options that are safe to get your littles out and about and celebrate this special holiday!

Below are some of egg-celent events (sorry, we couldn’t help the pun).
