Easter Egg Hunts, Parades and Other Easter Fun in Alabama in 2015!

Want to go to an Easter Egg Hunt, Easter Parade, Easter Train Ride or other Easter event in Alabama in 2015?

Here's Where to Find Easter Fun in Alabama!

There are Easter Eggs hunts all over Alabama in 2015!  They are great fun for families with children!  Most allow children from babies through elementary school to participant in the actual hunt, but almost all also have many other activities, music, food and entertainment for adults and older children. 

The egg hunts are usually right around Easter (obviously), often late March or early April; in 2015, since Easter will be on Sunday, April 5th, most egg hunts will be held on Saturday March 28, 2015, or on the Saturday right before Easter (April 4th) and a few on the Saturday before that (March 21, 2015), and then even fewer are held on Easter Sunday.. ALWAYS click the links to check date and time with the event's own website, as there are often last minute changes due to weather or logistical problems, just click on the link to the event's website and (in most cases), you want to click on the "events" link or "calendar" link on their website. Or use their site search for "Easter". Do let them know you found them here, so they will update us next year. There are also Easter breakfasts and brunches and Easter parades to watch! And if you would like to make your own natural organic Easter Egg dye, here's how to do it! And see these pages for a history of the Easter egg or the history of Easter egg hunts, and the origin of the Easter Bunny!  This page shows you how to hard boil eggs and this page how to blow (or empty) an egg. Finally, you will probably also like our sister websites, which help you find pick-your-own farms to go pick strawberries, blueberries, apples, etc. in your local area!

 

Always confirm dates and times via the contact information provided - they often change or cancel and do not tell me! Note: On the Easter Egg Hunt sponsor's website, usually, you will want to click on either "events" or their calendar to see the details!
