The Chicago Park District hops to it this spring by hosting dozens of egg hunts, including one for dogs, one with flashlights and another in the pool, March 28-April 19 at citywide parks.  Most events will feature treats, prizes, face painting, arts and crafts plus photo opportunities with the bunny.  Some activities may require pre-registration due to limited space.  Many programs are admission free or have nominal entrance fees.  Participants should call the individual parks for additional information.

One of this year’s highlights is the 11th annual Spring Egg-Stravaganza at Soldier Field, 1410 S. Museum Campus Dr., the largest admission-free candy grab in Chicago, Saturday, April 12.
