It’s time once again, for the annual list of Minnesota Easter Egg Hunts and events. We’ve tried to include as many as we can but please leave a comment or email us at thriftyjinxy@ live.com if you know of any we missed that you feel we should include.

For each of the hunts below, click on the city name for further information and find out details, some require advance registration.
