This year, Easter Sunday falls on Sunday, April 5th and you know all the kids will have their attention focused on one thing: Easter egg hunts! There’s something about those brightly colored spherical objects and the race to find them that has kept children enthralled for hundreds of years, and it seems it never wears off!
This year there are several Easter egg hunts taking place in and around the Wallingford area. I have done my best to discover most of them and list them here. If you know of one that I have missed, please leave a comment below and I will be happy to add it!
