It’s Easter Egg Hunt time in the Vail Valley! Will we get one last traditional Easter snowstorm this weekend? Kids valley-wide are always prepared with cute springtime outfits to full snow suits for our local Egg Hunts. Be prepared, dust off those baskets and head out for some fun this weekend with the kiddos!
Eagle Easter Egg Hunt & Eggernaut Competition
The community hunt is Saturday, April 20, at 10 a.m. at Eagle Town Park.
The hunt is divided into age areas and is open to kids 10 and younger. Bring your own basket and get ready to gather up eggs full of candy and toys.
The Easter Bunny will be hopping around the park throughout the morning.
Following the hunt, the annual Eggernaut Competition is planned. Kids are invited to invent an egg protection contraption and their handiwork will then be dropped from the Greater Eagle Fire Departments 50-foot ladder truck. Egg apparatus must not contain any metal, glass or other material that may shatter upon impact. They must also weigh less than 5 pounds total. The eggs will be handed out at the start of the event and must be able to be removed or viewed after the drop.
The town of Gypsum’s annual Eggstravaganza is planned Saturday, April 20, beginning at 9 a.m. at the lawn in front of the Gypsum Town Hall. There will be age appropriate activities with prizes for every participant.
The Gypsum Fire Department will host a pancake breakfast at 9 a.m. and the toddler/preschool egg hunts will begin at 9:30 a.m. The town of Gypsum will provide an Easter basket to kids younger than 6 years old. Children will be released in groups of 20 in an area where they can easily grab treat-filled eggs.
For kids ages 6 to 12, there will be a combined egg hunt starting at 10 a.m.
Vail Annual Easter Egg Hunt
Families and their children ages 2 to 10 are invited to join the Vail Recreation District for its annual free Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 20, in Lionshead Village.
The free event will begin at 9:30 a.m. with a visit from the Easter Bunny followed by a quest for prizes and eggs that will start promptly at 10 a.m. Children can redeem their collected eggs for an assortment of prizes. The event will be held rain, snow or shine, so dress children accordingly. Bring your own Easter basket or bag to carry eggs and prizes.

Avon Egg Hunt
The Avon Egg Hunt returns to Harry A. Nottingham Park on Saturday, April 20, at 10 a.m.
Families are invited to participate in games, play in inflatables, interact with a balloon artist and enjoy a visit from the Easter Bunny.
The free hunt will feature 10,000 eggs filled with candy. Please be aware that some of the candy found at the event may contain peanuts.
The egg hunt event is a bully-free zone and participants are expected to “be a buddy, not a bully.” The actual hunt will be organized by height instead of age. Check in at the town of Avon tent to have your child measured and receive a wristband to participate with other children of approximately the same height.
There will be a special egg hunt area for children 3 years of age and younger, with their own bouncy house.
Free egg hunt tote bags will be available while supplies last.
Parking for the egg hunt is available at the Avon Recreation Center, Avon Town Hall east lot, Avon Elementary School and along Lake Street and West Beaver Creek Boulevard.
