Hunt for eggs in Winter Park
When: 15th April 2017
Every year, for 63 years in fact, Winter Park hosts their annual Easter egg hunt. Its great fun for kids, and equally as enjoyable for the adults who watch. All children aged 10 and below can take part, and entry is completely free. All they’ll need is a basket for storing their eggs!
The hunt will take place in Central Park and a huge 10,000 eggs will be hidden across the grounds. There’s no need to worry about little ones who don’t manage to find an egg either, there’s plenty of extra treats waiting for them in a special sweet area.
Winter Park lies just outside Orlando, less than a 20-minute drive away.
