Easter Egg Hunts in Carroll County, MD

Easter egg hunts are a popular Easter tradition. Children enjoy running and rushing to gather as many eggs as possible. Adults enjoy watching the excitement as children pick up eggs, in hopes their child won’t be disappointed by the number of eggs they successfully claim.

Some Easter egg hunts in Carroll County involve fresh hard-boiled eggs, dyed a variety of spring colors. Other Easter egg hunts involve plastic eggs, often containing candy or other prizes. Often-times, a few of the plastic eggs contain a slip of paper, allowing the owner to claim a special prize such as a chocolate bunny. And then there are those Easter egg hunts that involve a combination of hard-boiled eggs and plastic eggs. No matter the type of egg hunt, it’s a fun time for all involved.
