Get Hopping! Egg Hunts, the Easter Bunny, and other Egg-cellent Events

It’s Easter Egg Hunt season.

That means time for egg-citing family fun time. KZOOkids has your ultimate guide for egg hunts in the Kalamazoo-area for 2019.

There is so much family fun to be had this Easter season, and it isn’t limited to Easter egg hunts. Of course, your kids will have a blast at one (or more) of the many egg hunts to scoop up as many brightly colored eggs as they can. They will also love coloring Easter eggs or visiting with the Easter bunny.

Easter Bunny Hunt

2019 Easter Egg Hunts and Bunny Sightings around Kalamazoo

Along with the arrival of spring, comes the fun of hunting for the best egg out there. Local favorites:

Make your way downtown Kalamazoo on April 20 from 2:00 P.M. – 4:00 P.M. for the annual Easter Egg Hunt. This is a free, family-friendly event that features an egg hunt divided into three age groups (0-3, 4-6, 7-9). There will also be crafts, face painting, and visits with the Easter Bunny.

Don’t miss a day of family fun at the Mattawan Easter Egg Hunt and Community Carnival on April 13. The carnival will be from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM in the Antwerp Activity Center and there will be games for all ages, prizes, and vision screenings. Kids ages 0-12 can participate in the egg hunt at 12:00 PM and enjoy a bounce house and photo booth. The Easter Bunny will be at both the carnival and the Easter egg hunt for pictures.

Bring the kids (under age 12) to the Paw Paw Community Easter Egg Hunt on April 20 at 10:30 A.M. at the Kid’s Paradise Playground. Be the lucky one to find a golden ticket during the Easter egg hunt and you’ll get a great prize.
