Easter egg hunts around DeKalb offer free fun for the family

With Easter right around the corner, it’s time to start looking for Easter egg hunts to celebrate the season and have fun with the kids.

Luckily, communities around DeKalb County are putting on a host of Easter events over the next two weekends — at no cost to families. Organizers for most of the events urged families to bring their own baskets to hold the Easter eggs.

  • Saturday, April 13, Decatur: DeKalb County is hosting its second annual “Egg Extravaganza” at Exchange Park (2771 Columbia Dr., Decatur, GA 30034, near Panthersville). From 2 to 5 p.m., the event will feature vendors, face painting, a bounce house, giveaways and photos with the Easter bunny. Children will be split up into various age groups to hunt for the eggs.

At Lynwood Park (3360 Osborne Road), this new event will give special considerations to visually and hearing-impaired youngsters, as well as children in wheelchairs and those who are sensory-sensitive. The event will be held 10 a.m. to noon on the outdoor basketball courts behind the recreation center.
  • That same day, the city is putting on a special egg hunt for dogs at 3 p.m. At the Brookhaven Park Dog Park (4158 Peachtree Road), people can bring their furry friends to search for special Easter eggs containing dog treats.
