Easter egg hunts used to be small, after-church activities for the kids before you joined the family for lunch. Now, there are St. Charles area egg hunts for children, adults, and even canines.
Some of the activities we've listed below have a cost to them. Preregistration is usually required...even some of the free activities. Click the More Information link after each listing to learn about costs and registration requirements.
