Egg Hunt and Breakfast with the Easter Bunny
The Huber Ridge Area Association is hosting an Easter Egg Hunt starting promptly at 9:00 AM, followed by a breakfast. While reservations are required, the event is free to all who attend!
Underwater Easter Egg Hunt
If you want to try something new this Easter, check out this fun version of an egg hunt hosted by the Worthington Pools. Tickets are $4 a child if you pre-register before March 23rd, but don’t fret if you miss this deadline! Tickets are also available at the door for $5 per child. Every child will leave with a prize, and the boy and girl who collect the most eggs will go home with a special prize!

Join the Northwest United Methodist Church from 2PM-4PM for egg hunts, crafts, and more! The church is putting on this event for free but requests that those who attend consider bringing boxes of pasta, macaroni and cheese packages, or peanut butter for their families who participate in their Brown Bag Lunch Ministry Program. Age group will separate the hunts, and all candy is peanut and gluten-free!
Easter Egg Hunt for Special Families
Beginning at 3 PM, Village Green Park will be transformed into an egg hunt made especially for families with at least one child with special needs. This hunt has three rules in place to ensure that everyone has the best time possible: every kid gets the same number of eggs, all of the eggs contain inedible items to avoid all allergies, and the hunt will be completed at each child’s own pace. If you’re interested in taking part of this hunt, visit the Fluttering Families webpage to fill out the required registration form.

EGGS, PAWS & CLAWS

With everything from V.I.B (Very Important Bunny) appearances to watching zoo animals partake in their very own egg hunt, there’s something for everyone to enjoy!
If it sounds too good to be true, it’s probably not true…but not in this case! Free inflatables, face-painting, food, and a helicopter egg drop await you at Eggsplosion! With locations at Licking Heights High School in Pataskala and at Centennial High School in Upper Arlington, there’s no reason not to go to this awesome event!
