What Easter weekend is complete without searching for some brightly colored eggs? The Redemption Hill Church is hosting two free Easter Egg Hunts in Medford on Saturday, April 19th. The first hunt starts at 10am at Morrison Park, and the second search is at 1pm at Tufts Park. For those of you with a sweet tooth, there’s also going to be free candy!

Closer to Somerville? The hunt will be on there as well. You can hop over to Chuck Harris Park at 1pm on April 19th to find some eggs. It’s a BYOB event, meaning bring your own basket.

If you don’t have your own basket, you can decorate one then fill it with eggs at The Children’s Workshop in Norwood. The free fun begins at 9am on April 19th. You have to RSVP to this event so there are enough supplies.

The Uno Chicago Grill in Haverhill is holding a fun filled morning Easter eggs- travaganza on Saturday, April 12th. The day starts at 10:45am with two Easter Egg Hunts, one for children 4 and younger and one for kids ages 5 thru 10. Then you can meet the Easter Bunny and have some lunch. Children eat for free with the purchase of an adult entrée.

If you’re in downtown Boston, you can skip into spring at Faneuil Hall Marketplace. Starting at 10am on Saturday, April 19th, you can pick up a basket at Quincy's Place in the Quincy Market building then discover hidden treats and treasures in the marketplace. Children who find the most eggs will win additional gifts! After the Easter Egg Hunt, bounce down to the West End Promenade for a free concert.
