Take a trip to your favorite neighborhood Chicago Park District for an Easter Egg Hunt —Every year, the CPD host Easter Egg Hunts throughout Chicago and they can all be found HERE. The bunny is making a special visit to many parks this spring. You’ll find dozens of egg hunts, including a few with flashlights, one for dogs, and another in the pool, along with a number of luncheons with the bunny. These family-friendly events take place March 29 – April 15 at parks throughout the city. Many of the events feature treats, prizes, face painting, arts & crafts and photo opportunities with the bunny. Some events may require pre-registration due to limited space. Many are free or have nominal entrance fees. Call the individual parks for additional information.
Here are two of our favorites:
We love the big Easter Egg Hunt at Maggie Daley Park, which hosts an annual Easter egg hunt. This year, they’ve partnered with Medieval Times and hunters will be treated to a parade, knight performances, knight training, medieval crafts and more. While you’re there, climb aboard a life-sized play ship, scurry to the top of a wooden lookout tower, zip down a three-level tube slide, or walk across a wooden bridge and wave to onlookers below.
Apr. 14, 10a-2p at the Park at 337 E. Randolph St.
