Head to these Easter egg hunts in the Philly area

Join in the family-friendly tradition

This year, Easter Sunday falls on April 16. For many families, hiding chocolate and toys in plastic eggs for kids to find is a favorite activity to celebrate the holiday. 

Over Easter weekend and the weekend before, neighborhoods across the Greater Philadelphia area will join in the tradition with community egg hunts in gardens, parks, museums and activity centers.

Many of the egg hunts below are free; all are $15 and under.
