Most Easter egg hunts are for the under 12 crowd but local teens can also try their luck at five nighttime versions. To turn up the challenge level, the hunts are held in the dark with teens searching by flashlights.
Teens need to be at the location a bit before the hunt to hear the instructions and any pertinent information. These are BYOB (bring your own bag) / BYOF (bring your own flashlight) affairs.
